Nongovernment organizations (NGOs) have become increasingly common in conflict zones throughout the world. They provide services that have been the responsibility of understaffed, undersupplied, and undertrained local nations and communities. However, these organizations face many difficulties. They are walking a thin line between militaries, governments, and local politics. They must find ways to stay supplied and staffed. The research presented in this article focuses on three NGOs and the impact they are making throughout the world. By understanding the role these organizations play in providing medical relief to conflict zones without the help of government agencies, one can see the importance of their work and the struggles they face.
