On November 19th, all 8th grade students visited Medical Teams International’s REAL LIFE exhibit in Tigard, Oregon.  Our 8th graders learned first hand that the world is a place of many needs and that making a positive difference is as easy as getting involved.  The trip gave students the opportunity to step into eight places where the volunteers of Medical Teams International serve with local in-country partners.  Among the scenes they observed were:

  • A medical triage clinic after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
  • A room with a 25-foot tsunami wave, along with stories and drawings made by children who survived the tsunami.
  • A Ugandan camp for people displaced by a terrorist group that abducts children and forces them into their “army.”
  • A Haitian earthquake site and a tent camp where homeless Haitians are living.
  • A Mozambiquan village compound where HIV and AIDS have ravaged the community.
