Meteor

Meteor is an educational tool kit created by Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders to introduce students in grade 6 and up to humanitarian work and the situations Doctors Without Borders teams face. Students can use role play to put themselves in the shoes of a team member (doctor, nurse, logistician, etc.) and respond to different emergency situations such as armed conflict or natural disasters.
