Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) is the parish charity for May. It employs 30,000 staff in 65 countries and is very often the first to respond to an emergency (whether earthquake, tsunami, war or atrocity), deploying staff and resources, including an inflatable hospital. It also supports humanitarian projects, even long term medical programmes. The charity is independent, neutral and impartial. For more information, including video clips, go to
