Voices on the Border Photo Exhibition
La Cabaña Restaurant,
3614 14th Street NW
Pupusas served, full bar available
Join Voices’ staff, executive director, and board members on May 14, 2010 for discussion and refreshments, and enjoy a short presentation via video conference from Jorge Melendez, Minister of Civil Protection in El Salvador.
The proceeds from the exhibition will support a collaborative effort with the George Washington University Ronald Reagan Institute of Emergency Medicine and Voices on the Border to better prepare the Municipal Civil Protection Committee of Jiquilisco, Usulután in El Salvador for disaster and emergency response.
In June, a small team of GWU emergency medicine doctors will travel to El Salvador to participate in a disaster simulation, and help the communities complete their disaster response plan. The Lower Lempa of Jiquilisco is subject to frequent disasters and community leaders are trying to better coordinate their preparation and response. The doctors are generously donating their time and expertise, all we have to do is get them there.
