Seasonal Special Happenings

The Refugees

When: Tue., Aug. 4 2015

The world is fraught with problems. One recurring crisis has to do with refugees. What happens when disaster strikes and people have to flee their homes? That's the topic for tonight's lecture series, Happy Dog Takes on the World. When an earthquake recently struck Nepal, more than 9,000 people were killed and 23,000 were injured. The UN maintains that nearly 2.8 million people still require continued vital humanitarian assistance. Getting aid where it needs to go is no easy task. The City Club of Cleveland, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, International Partners in Mission and the Northeast Consortium for Middle Eastern Studies have brought together the panelists for tonight's discussion. It takes place at 7:30 p.m. at the Happy Dog. Admission is free. (Niesel)
