They work alongside more than 22,500 locally hired staff to provide medical care in more than 60 countries. In emergencies and their aftermath, MSF provides health care, rehabilitates and runs hospitals and clinics, performs surgery, battles epidemics, carries out vaccination campaigns, operates feeding centers for malnourished children, and offers mental health care. When needed, MSF also constructs wells and dispenses clean drinking water, and provides shelter materials like blankets and plastic sheeting.

Lawyers for Children, Inc.
110 Lafayette St, 8th floor
New York, NY 10013
LFC is dedicated to protecting the rights of individual children in foster care in New York City and compelling system-wide reform of the foster care system. Every child we represent receives free legal and social work services in cases involving foster care, abuse, neglect, termination of parental rights, adoption, guardianship, custody, and visitation. Our attorneys and social workers collaborate on every case to insure that when a desperate child is placed in foster care, their temporary home provides them with the safety, comfort and support that every child needs. And we reduce the time a child must spend in foster care by vigorously advocating for court ordered plans that achieve permanency for children by returning them to their families or speeding their adoption. Our goal is to help find a safe, permanent and loving home for each child we represent by providing them with the highest quality legal and social work services, as well as to advocate for the rights of children in foster care on a system-wide basis.

We are committed to reversing the degradation of our planet's natural environment and to building a future in which human needs are met in harmony with nature.

Wounded Warrior Project Inc.
4899 Belfort Road
Jacksonville, FL 32256
The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. We do this by raising public awareness and enlisting the public's aid for the needs of injured servicemen and women; by helping injured service members aid and assist each other; and by providing unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. WWP accomplishes this by providing programs and services to injured service members and their families during the critical time between their initial rehabilitation while on active duty and their eventual transition to civilian life. We begin at their bedside providing essential items and services and support the warrior through his/her rehabilitation and transition to civilian life through education and employment training and opportunities. WWP employs staff with over 55 years of combined experience in providing direct services to active duty service members and disabled veterans, including benefits counseling, representation before the department of veterans affairs, bringing public attention to the needs of wounded service members, and advocating for regulatory and statutory changes beneficial to veterans and active duty service members. Few organizations devote their resources to assisting the wounded during this critical period. WWP fills this vital, unmet need, bringing comfort, support, and aid to severely injured service members and their families during this challenging time in their lives.
