Support Doctors Without Borders

International aid organizations urgently need financial donations for medical aid organizations, food, water, clothes, shelter and the logistics for professional relief and trained volunteer work to help victims of ongoing emergencies and natural disasters around the world.

For many excellent new updates, see sign up for all forms of social media to the major site and Google's news about developments as they unfold.

  • Please browse the relief agency links below and contribute what you can to the one with which you are most comfortable.
  • Check out the international aid resources for breaking news and a broader perspective on current crises and the many humanitarian requirements around the world.

See Matthew Bolton's article on Becoming an International Aid Worker for more background on this most demanding form of work, as well as Leyla Giray's piece on A Practical Guide on How to Find Work in Disaster Relief.

Generally, professional aid workers with needed skills working with NGOs and relief projects facilitated by the huge resources of the military or the U.N. can make a more immediate impact in an emergency situation, while many volunteers may require training or even be unintentionally in the way—though volunteer work is most welcome and critical in the long-term.
