There is a group of clinicians operating on the front line of war zones with no other purpose than to save lives. Global Response Management's Helen Perry comes on the show to discuss their work.
Their motto is semper vitae–always life. Their mission is to provide life saving emergency and prehospital care to those impacted by war and conflict.

We are always looking for qualified volunteers and we use Paramedics and above. EMTs are welcome to apply, but they may not be working in a clinical capacity due to World Health Organization minimum operating standards. We even need non-medical folks (social media marketing, finance, smart computer people, grant writers, etc.)
They are a registered not-for-profit (501c3) and their admin budget is super low. Please consider helping these folks.
I have had to close this post to comments b/c there have been a number of comments made by folks with false names and/or false contact information. The policy of this site is that all commenters must use their real identity linked to a real email address. There seems to be a group of folks out there that doubts the veracity of the GRM. If you have verifiable information on that, please get in touch by the contact link above.
