Refugee Camp in Piedmont Park
Experienced workers with Doctors Without Borders—the organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by wars, epidemics, disasters, and poor health care worldwide—are on-site in Atlanta to give tours of a refugee camp exhibit. The interactive display is made up of actual materials Doctors Without Borders uses to help wartime refugees. Aid workers lead tours through the exhibit, which includes a health clinic, vaccination tent, cholera treatment center, and samples of the high-energy biscuits used to combat malnutrition.
The exhibit is on display in The Meadow at Piedmont Park through October 1. The hours are daily from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Learn more here.
Hopefully we’ll never see anything like this actually in use in Atlanta.
