Take Action

Raise Awareness

There are many ways in which you can raise awareness about humanitarian issues or forgotten crisis situations.

If you want to stand in solidarity with doctors, patients and other civilians who are deliberately targeted in conflicts, download a pictogram from our #NotATarget page and post a photo of yourself with the hashtag #NotATarget on Instagram, twitter, snapchat or Facebook.

Let us know what ideas you have come up with – send us a few lines and photos of your project and we will showcase it on our website: schools@toronto.msf.org
