A different kind of “End of the Year” list from Doctors without Borders

December 27, 2008


It’s that time of year for “best of the year” or summing up lists. One of the organizations that I admire most, Doctors without Borders (Medecins San Frontieres “MSF”), has published its annual list of the world’s most urgent humanitarian crises.

Usually the title of this list includes “most underreported.”  Perhaps this year, with the increasing prominence of Social Media, MSF realizes that it can create and distribute its OWN media about these crises. The 2008 list is impressively multimedia with graphics, testimony, slideshows, video and lots of ways to share the information through social networking websites.

Here’s a recent video about MSF’s work in Eastern Congo from its Condition: Critical project:

Check out the list and see what your support of MSF can mean around the world:

The year ends in only 6 days.

Why not donate today to help make these crises so they won’t make the list next year?
