Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has set up a miniature mock refugee camp in the shadow of the Washington Monument to raise awareness about refugee issues. The temporary “Forced From Home” exhibit is currently traveling the country. A press release from the organization states that it is “designed to deepen public understanding of the desperate plight of the current 65.3 million people forcibly displaced worldwide”.
The exhibit is located near the Washington Monument, just south of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Informational tours are approximately an hour in length.
