Medical Teams International - Real Life Exhibit





';Medical Teams International
has put together a truly remarkable exhibit on the scope
of human suffering, the call to action, and what an effective response
means to the lives of all involved. The exhibit is powerful and is a
remarkable community resource which should be seen by all? (church
groups, student groups, etc). It is a gift to our community from an
outstanding organization';. - Mike Hiland, Oregon Bread for the World?
