Living in Emergency Documentary: Stories of Doctors Without Borders

Most of the people are going nuts shopping xmas presents.
It's time to stop for a minute.

This is not funny nor beautiful but it's true, REAL LIFE.


“This film gets to the very core of who we are and why we exist.”
—Thierry Allafort-Duverger
Former head of the emergency team for MSF-France

  2. Mulla oli Suomessa ollessa yksi tuttava laakari, joka oli noissa hommissa. Koskaan ei tiennyt minne kutsu tuli. Ja millaisiin olosuhteisiin.

  7. I watched CNN heroes which also amazed me of how it only takes one person to make a change in so many lives. Glad this doctors without borders movie will be viewed by more people now.
