Doctors Without Borders is one of the world’s most selfless and worthwhile charities. But did you know there is a group called Homeopaths Without Borders? Yep, it exists. I wish I was making this up, but I’m not. Because it’s important that the world’s poorest countries have access to completely ineffective medical woo.
Homeopaths Without Borders – North America (HWB-NA) incorporated as a nonprofit humanitarian organization in the United States in 1996. We are an organization that offers both homeopathic treatment and education to foster independence in the use of homeopathic medicine. To date, we have provided service in Cuba, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Haiti…
HWB volunteers provided homeopathic care to 890 people in 2012 in community clinics in Port-au-Prince and rural communities—in some locations, a full two-day walk from the nearest doctor.
Out of curiosity, is throwing salt over the shoulder of 890 people better than throwing salt over the shoulder of 50 people? I imagine their goal is to put candle wax into the ears of millions of impoverished people in the Third World to “cleanse” their bodies of “toxins” and to make sure their “chakras” are “vibrating” faster than their diseases and conditions. And Homeopaths Without Borders sounds so much nicer than Bullshit Salesmen to Poor People.
