DEC 8, doctors and their practices: Doctors Without Borders

This verse is dedicated to Dr. M. G., an Irish-Canadian emergency physician, now in Yemen.


DOCTORS without BORDERS



Modern heroes, Médecins Sans Frontières,

Bring resources and skill-sets to bear,

Where disastrous disorders

Require docs without borders.

Aren't you glad, readers, someone does care?

 Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

(mayd-SEHN sahn frohnTYAYR)
Authors' Note: A small group of French doctors and journalists, in the wake of the horrific Biafran famine in 1971, founded Médecins Sans Frontières (occasionally for English speakers translated as Doctors Without Borders). Designed to deal with humanitarian crises in the developing world in regions beseiged by overt war, armed internal conflicts, epidemics and natural disasters, the charity has repeatedly distinguished itself, winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999. It currently operates in over seventy countries worldwide.
