During the 2012 holiday season, my family and I chose to give a substantial donation to Doctors without Borders in recognition of our employers and clients. The non-national, non-political approach of this group appeals to us and the people we work with very much. I first saw Doctors Without Borders (typically known by their French name, Médecins Sans Frontières) when working in El Salvador in the mid-1990s. They were a constant presence in that war-torn country. I spent the past year working for a firm that is dedicated to the design and architecture of hospitals, clinics, and academic medical centers. So many Doctors Without Borders staff members work without such luxuries.
