Doctors Without Borders

When you turn on the news tonight, you might here a little blip about famine in Africa. You might also hear about cholera in Haiti, fighting in Libya, an update on tsunami-ravaged Japan. You probably won’t hear about AIDS in Africa or a shortage of medication in Bolivia, but they are happening too.

The one constant in all these stories is that Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres) is on the ground. In many cases, it is ONE doctor on the ground, treating anyone who shows up – dehydrated children, HIV+ mothers, men with gunshot wounds.

More nimble that larger organizations, they are typically first on the ground when disaster strikes.

I support their mission with a monthly donation.

Please consider supporting them for my birthday.
