YANGON Gallery will host a photo exhibition to mark the 25 years of medical humanitarian action of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), according to an event organiser.
Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the MSF Myanmar on behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières plans to hold the photo exhibitions between 21 and 25 June, planning to showcase photographs from past and current activities in the country which presents unique portraits of the MSF staff and patients, providing a glimpse into their everyday realities.
The exhibition will be inaugurated by the MSF-Holland and MSF-Switzerland Heads of Mission, Karen, Karen Godley and Kevin Coppock.
The Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), has helped people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics and disasters as well as to people marginalized from healthcare.
The body performs surgery, fight epidemics, offer basic healthcare services, rehabilitate and run hospitals, carry out vaccinations, operate nutrition centres, provide mental healthcare and offer training to local medical staff.
The Yangon Gallery is located near Planetarium Museum in People’s Park, Ahlone Road, Dagon Township, Yangon.—Shwe Khine
