    DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS

    -the Grandaddy of All Doctor Organizations: one of the biggest contributions to the world from the French, including French Fries, and French toast!   Doctors Without Borders provides medical care to people in more than 70 countries worldwide, saving lives threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe. As a humanitarian organization, we treat people in crisis regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation.

    Every Mother Counts is a fantastic organization organized to see that mothers in Africa have the benefits of Internet Medicine.  The ubiquity of smartphones, which are more common than toothbrushes in the world, allows healthcare to reach those who could not be reached before, and this organization helps in this quest.

    This organization was started by former model, Christy Turlington, based mostly on her experiences making the movie, “No Woman, No Cry“.
