|When children are caught in
civil wars, when earthquakes destroy homes and villages, when AIDS and other
diseases shatter families and communities, the volunteers of Doctors Without
Borders are there. Their mission is simple to bring life-saving care to
the worlds neediest people and to speak out when the rights of the people
in their care are abused or violated.
Médecins Sans Frontières, known in English as Doctors Without Borders and by its volunteers as MSF, is the worlds largest independent medical humanitarian relief organization. Every year, more than 3,000 MSF volunteers and 12,000 local men and women bring medical aid to people in more than 70 countries.
In Healing Our World: Inside Doctors Without Borders, David Morley presents his own story and the stories of other MSFers who have volunteered in some of the most dangerous and forgotten corners of the world the Congo, El Salvador, Chechnya, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Afghanistan, southern Africa. These are stories about healing and helping people, about making the world a better place stories filled with sorrow and hope, anger and idealism, determination and passion.
