New York, NY: Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres
This exhibit travels around the U.S. and Canada to encourage visitors to imagine that they are among the millions of people fleeing violence and persecution in, for example, Somalia, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, or Sudan. The exhibit is made up of materials used by MSF in its emergency medical work around the world, including emergency refugee housing, a food distribution tent, water pump, health clinic, vaccination tent, therapeutic feeding center, and a cholera treatment center. For those who cannot attend the exhibit, the Web site includes photos, videos, and interactive guides that can be used as educational materials for students of all ages.
