Operation Refugee Child Display Awareness Display

Stop by this educational display created Dr. Sarah Minslow’s War and Genocide in Children's Literature class to learn to learn about the refugee crisis in Syria, the challenges faced by refugees, and a variety of ways individuals can help through existing non-profits and international volunteer opportunities. Passersby will be invited to play educational games, send a postcard of hope and peace to refugee children, enjoy bake sale items, and make a donation to Operation Refugee Child, a non-profit that distributes necessary supplies to children in refugee camps. 

The display activities will alternate days between outside of the Student Union and Prospector.
