Living in Emergency

This is the first time I’ve blogged about Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres), but I can promise it won’t be the last. In all the world of charitable organizations, this is one of my very favorites. The work they do worldwide is unmatched and vital. Lives are saved every day because of these people.

The work they do has impact in ways we can only guess, even if you are on the mailing list and get email updates and action alerts like I do, it is still somewhat mysterious. Now, pull the veil, and learn more from the front lines of changing the world, by attending this one-night-only cinema event on December 14.

It is the first time a documentary crew had open access to Doctors Without Borders field operations, and the resulting film shows you the world of four doctors “in the face of overwhelming medical need.”

There are 450 theatres nationwide showing the film and the live staelite town hall discussion that follows (featuring panelists Sebastian Junger-best-selling author of The Perfect Storm and Vanity Fair contributing editor, Dr. Tom Krueger-Doctors Without Borders surgeon featured in the documentary, and Sophie Delaunay-executive director of Doctors Without Borders-USA, moderated by ABC news anchor Elizabeth Vargas).

If you can’t see the film, you should still visit the website and support this unparalleled organization.
