The worldwide refugee crisis is the biggest humanitarian challenge of our time. Did you know the majority of refugees are women & children? Or that Syrian refugees have increased Lebanon’s population by more than 25%?

Come have your myths busted with Healthy Women, Healthy World and hear first-hand experience from Medical Teams International staff and a local refugee woman.

Join us for a compelling discussion and bring your Q&A!

Medical Teams is providing healthcare in refugee settlements serving victims fleeing war in Syria & South Sudan.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please let us know if you can attend!

We will be collecting new sheet sets (twin, full, queen) to donate to Refugee Resettlement - Lutheran Community Services Northwest. Bring if you'd like!
