Would your students like to hear about the world of humanitarian relief and the personal and practical challenges that face our field workers as they try to save lives?
Médecins Sans Frontières can come to your school or college to open up this stimulating area of international engagement. The people we work with are affected by some of the most tragic events: armed conflict, epidemics and natural disasters. But the lesson of our medical projects is that life and dignity can be restored, one patient at a time.
We can adjust the nature and complexity of the talk to suit the grade level of the students. Possible topics include the fight against Ebola, emergency medicine in war zones, malnutrition programmes, vaccination campaigns and the work of mobile clinics in remote areas.
But these are not intended to be technical descriptions of the projects; the talks are really about the passion, heartache and commitment of our doctors, nurses and engineers on the front line.
