Catherine Carr compares being stuck in her work and life like constantly washing dishes. Dull, unchallenging and stagnant. That is, until she decided she was through being stuck and ready to dream big. Catherine’s metaphoric dishwashing days were over.
She went on the Doctors Without Borders website and, to her great surprise, found a job that fit her skills. It hadn’t even occurred to Catherine that there would be “normal jobs” like finance, operations and human resources within Doctors Without Borders. But just a few weeks later, she was hired as an HR finance coordinator and was off to Kenya to support the organization’s mission of international medical and humanitarian aid.
Amid the Parisian upheavals of May 1968, a group of young doctors decided to go and help victims of wars and major disasters. This new brand of humanitarianism would reinvent the concept of emergency aid.
"It’s simple really: go where the patients are. It seems obvious, but at the time it was a revolutionary concept because borders got in the way. It’s no coincidence that we called it ‘Médecins Sans Frontières’." MSF is known internationally in English as Doctors Without Borders. Bernard Kouchnermsk- Founder

Jules Kuperberg is Co-Executive Director of the MSF. A graduate of Northern Michigan University and a seasoned business executive, he has served in various capacities since joining in 1991. Jules takes great pride in his involvement in the evolution of the MSF from that of a regional agency into a multidimensional national service organization. His responsibilities include overseeing fund development and general operations.
Jules developed MSF’s national campaign center, one of the few outbound fund raising and public awareness call centers in the nation directly owned and managed by a charitable organization. Jules was among the founders of the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition, an affiliation of leading MS organizations dedicated to fighting MS through various collaborative initiatives.

Mark Hopkins, director, "Living in Emergency," which opens at the Opera Plaza in San Francisco, June 4 and in New York at Sunshine is about the humanitarian organization: Doctors without Borders. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans
Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. Living in Emergency follows these doctors, two on first year missions, the others veterans. It is a window into emergency medicine from the perspective of the international healers and those already on the ground and the synergy that develops when the strength of community via professional and paraprofessional relationships are developed and utilized. Hopkins's film is a study in human capital and development. One sees volunteers change for the better as the volatile terrain places immediate demands on skill sets medical school and subsequent practices, ill prepared them for--but succeed they must; Timothy Suttle, Haiti Soleil board member, and IT specialist, speaks about a fundraiser for the organization, Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 7 -9:30 PM, at Levende East, 827 Washington Street, Oakland, CA, 94607.
