Top 10 Humanitarian Stories You May Not Have Heard

Doctors Without Borders has a list of the Top Ten Under-Reported Humanitarian Stories of 2005. We all heard about the tsunami and the hurricanes. Had you heard about the continuing violence in Haiti (started in February 2004)? Of course, most of the stories are written from the "We need doctors/money" perspective, but the fact is that doctors are needed because the needs are huge. While most of the stories are from Africa, there are stories from South America, North America (Haiti), Europe, and Asia. Humanitarian issues cover every part of the globe.
