What is it like to be a refugee?

And how can we better serve those displaced by war and famine?

To find out, join the

Head of the International Rescue Team of the United Nations, Dr. Ana  Julieta Calvo,

on Thursday, June 18 at 7:00 pm

at Bellarmine Chapel on the campus of Xavier University.

 Dr. Calvo works in the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and is currently working in Za'atari, where she is in charge of 3 hospitals and  11 clinics.  As a medical doctor, Calvo has spent time in many countries  including Colombia, Mozambique, Kosovo, Uganda, and Jordan.  Although most of her work has taken place in refugee camps, she has also worked with  urban refugee settlements.

"All of my activities, including shelter, protection, water-sanitation  and health services, are vital to protecting and decreasing the suffering  of refugees from war," she says. 

At Za'atari, Dr. Calvo and her team deliver approximately 70 babies a week, provide 60,000 health  consultations every month, vaccinate thousands of children, run hygiene  campaigns, and treat people with chronic illnesses.
