MSF Doctors Without Borders Events

You are invited to attend the following MSF Doctors Without Borders Events

There are some upcoming MSF Doctors Without Borders events requiring volunteers. Please contact Lydia Meister at if you can volunteer. If you have contacts that may be interested in these opportunities, please forward. Thanks!

Event 1: MSF Doctors Without Borders Pre-event for World TB Day to raise awareness on TB

Date:  Sunday, March 16
Time:  10:00-14:00
Venue:  Science World, by the main entrance
There will be a tent in front of Science World providing information on TB. In order to garner attention, have people ask questions, and direct people to the TB tent, we are creating a “circuit”, which runs from Science World over Cambie Street Bridge via the Sea Wall. The circuit is approximately 4 km in length, and is quite a scenic walk. The objective is to have people “walk the circuit” in groups wearing masks with the words “STOP TB” written on them. Can you participate as a volunteer to wear masks saying STOP TB and walk the seawall around the area  “walk the circuit”, directing people to the TB booth and answering basic questions about TB if asked? Everyone can participate: Expats, Benevoles, partners, spouses, children. TB impacts everyone in the community, including families and children.  TB does not discriminate.
We would like to stagger people over the day, from 10:00 to 14:00.  If you could confirm your participation, the time you are available, and the number of people in the group, it would be really helpful.
