Horn of Africa : Doctors Without Borders

This week, Current TV will be airing another episode from their Doctors Without Borders tv series. (check your listings!)

I’ve been a long-time admirer and financial supporter of this wonderful aid organization. While the Red Cross and UN are good at providing long-term support for a region, Doctors Without Borders excels at quickly providing aid in the most dangerous places on earth. Earlier this year, you might have heard about journalists being unable to reach certain areas of North Africa as revolutions swept the region. Dodging bombs and bullets, Doctors Without Borders was there.

Last year, I saw Living in Emergency, an amazing documentary about their work. I never really thought disaster conditions were great, but I developed even greater respect for these workers who were often all alone for weeks at a time, providing treatment without medical supplies and working by flashlight.

If you watch international news today, you’ll probably see them with their trademark red-and-white MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières) shirts, trying desperately to save malnourished children in the Horn of Africa.

You don’t have to wait until my birthday to donate. You can help today.
