Sandy inspires first Doctors Without Borders US relief effort

Reuters, November 12, 2012
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Doctors Without Borders has set up its first-ever medical clinic in the US. A week after Sandy swept through New York City, knocking out power and public transportation for days, Doctors Without Borders established temporary emergency clinics in the Rockaways in Queens, to tend to residents of high-rises that still lacked power and heat and had been left isolated by the storm. In many ways, this side of New York City is much like the war zones or disaster areas where Doctors Without Borders normally works.
