ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

In other news

If you have some money lying around that you don't know what to do with, or were just going to spend on cake, you could of course send it to good old Doctors Without Borders; in an article on the Congo I read this morning in the Times, it notes that
Aid agencies in Bunia*, the regional capital, have struggled to work in the area. The militias and bandits remain in the countryside even if they have been pushed from their hilltop redoubts, and they prey upon aid convoys for food, medicine and money.

[Disease is also rampant. On June 22, Doctors Without Borders appealed for help in fighting pneumonic plague in the northeast, citing 144 cases, and said the area faced "an outbreak spiraling out of control," Agence France-Presse reported.]

The need is enormous: One Italian agency, Cesvi, tried to take food to Aveba but found so many displaced people in Geti, along the way, that it emptied its supplies there.
. I don't know why parts are in brackets. Might be an update or something. Anyway, here's the donation site in Canada and here's the donation site in the U.S..

Just sayin', is all. Oh, here are the updates on their activities around the world.

someday I want to marry me a doctor without borders!


* I think this is the town where my friend Eleanor used to live, if memory serves.
