Doctors Without Borders, a volunteer organization that treats victims of war, famine and other disasters around the world, was awarded the $1 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize.

"My heart is not at the Waldorf," Dr. John McGill, president of the organization's U.S. branch, said Tuesday in accepting the prize at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. "My heart is in Kosovo, with people freezing in the forests, and with 15,000 malnourished children in southern Sudan."
