Faces of Humanity

Faces of Humanity Dates / Times 2018-03-16 to 2018-03-16 (11:00 to 19:00) Organization Canadian Red Cross Type Single Day Community Calgary TELUS Convention Centre, 120 9 Avenue Southeast Calgary, ABT2G 0P3 Imagine leaving your home, able to take only what you can carry, and walking for as many as 14 days to reach safety. This is the journey many of those who have fled violence in Myanmar have taken. Since August 25, 2017, over 688,000 displaced people have arrived in Bangladesh. They are living in overcrowded, makeshift settlements, and the majority of them are women and children. The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, including the Canadian Red Cross, was quick to respond to this crisis, providing much-needed food, clean drinking water, shelter and healthcare. Join us for Faces of Humanity 2018, a multimedia exhibit that will immerse you into the current crisis in Bangladesh. Faces of Humanity tells the story of Canadian Red Cross aid workers and their international partners, from all walks of life. The exhibit will feature doctors, nurses, engineers, electricians, administrators and social workers who provide assistance to the most vulnerable people. Take a journey into a disaster response with us, and experience the power of humanity. Exhibit will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and takes approximately 30 minutes to view. Exhibit is FREE to attend. .
