MRCs Social Responsibility
Availlbility of medical sevices, let alone specialized medical services, in the developing world has been, and still is, often dependent on external aid in the shape of the Red Cross, Medecins Sans Frontieres and the like. For obvious reasons, this is not a sustainable situation as millions of people are dependent on the political whims of western governments who adjust their commitment to help or not help in function of the state of their respective nations economy and/or the prevailing political climate ahead of, or after, an election. So charity alone, however highly desirable, does not make the trick.
