Re-Thinking the Ebola Crisis (Kelowna)

BC Council for International Cooperation and Global Citizen Kelowna as we come together to explore and re-think ongoing challenges of the West Africa Ebola crisis within a global citizenship perspective.
Questions addressed will include a brief overview of what’s happened so far, what’s worked and what hasn’t, and finally, in a world where we are striving to share the challenges of our global realities, how can we begin thinking in terms of ‘we’ rather than ‘us’ vs. ‘them’, and what would that look like in the context of the current Ebola crisis?
KENDELL KAUFFELDT
FEATURED SPEAKER
Country Director for Samaritan’s Purse Liberia for the past 10 years, Kendell Kauffeldt has led the Samaritan’s Purse Ebola response since the outbreak began in early 2014, providing leadership in Liberia and from International Headquarters in Boone, North Carolina.
