Doctors Without Borders will be seeking recruits at their event in Sunnyside on July 25.

Aid worker and recruitment officers from the international medical humanitarian organization will hold a presentation and Q & A session at Sunnyside Community Services (43-31 39th St.) The organization — which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999 — has openings for both medical and non-medical professional to help run their projects around the world.

Peter Lundgren, an aid worker who has been with the organization since 2011, will be joined by a Field Human Resources officer to discuss the requirements of the application process. Attendees will also get the opportunity to meet with several experienced aid workers from the area to hear firsthand accounts of their time in the field.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and is slated to last approximately 90 minutes.

Doctors Without Borders was founded in France in 1971, and has treated tens of millions of people around the globe since its inception. They have been providing assistance to people who have been victims of violence, neglect or catastrophe, regardless of political and religious affiliation or economic status.

Every year, doctors, nurses, logisticians, water and sanitation experts, administrators, and other medical and non-medical professionals treat people in need on over 7,700 aid assignments. Professionals are spread out in nearly 70 countries around the world, including Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Haiti, India and the Philippines.

Event organizers encourage those who are interested in attending to register, as venue space is limited. Click here for more information about the event and to secure a spot.
