Association "Friends of World Doctors Orchestra" e.V.

The music making physicians of the World Doctors Orchestra (WDO) share a passion for music, but do not gather several times per year for its own sake. They pay all travel expenses by themselves to perform benefit concerts worldwide and donate all proceeds to non-profit medical aids organizations. Since 2008 they raise with their series of benefit concerts global awareness that healthcare is a basic human right and a precondition for human development.  

This vision needs sustainable support! Therefore the Association “Friends of World Doctors Orchestra” e.V. was founded in June 2012. The purpose of the nonprofit association is to build a financial basis for the WDO in order to carry on with the realization of extraordinary concert performances. As a member of the Association you significantly contribute to the success of the orchestra, the concerts and the funding of the projects. Everyone can become a member who feels connected to the orchestra and the central theme.
