Doctors Without Borders
On May 13, 2010, Naomi Sutorius (Press Officer, Toronto Office), Susie Tector (MD; five missions in the Congo, Darfour, Pakistan...) and Michelle Chouinard (mental health professional, Project Coordinator; six missions in Indonesia, Haiti...) from Doctors Without Borders (MSF) joined Denis Rancourt in studio to discuss the work of this renowned politically responsible humanitarian organization.
The discussion included insightful comments on the motives and experiences of First World humanitarian aid workers and presented the outstanding model of aid used by MSF.
A recent project, Refugee Camp in the Hear of the City was a four city tour in Ontario and Québec where a refugee camp was physically recreated to show visitors what survival looks like for the 42 million people uprooted by war.
