Mending The World: Medical Teams International says
The Portland-metro region is home to a number of organizations making a difference around the globe, including Medical Teams International. How do they respond to disasters around the world—and here at home? Where do they work and how do they mobilize long-term health promotion initiatives with local communities globally to have a sustainable impact? Join us for a close-up look at MTI's work with Joe DiCarlo, global ambassador for MTI, followed by discussion with Felix Omodi, country director for MTI's Uganda programs. Great opportunity to hear about not only MTI's mission and work, but hear frontline stories from Omodi, who has helped thousands of Ugandans recover from chronic conflict, disease, and displacement, and who survived a nine-month abduction by the Lord's Resistance Army.
