Glenaeon's PDHPE teacher, Jonas Stoebe, has a brother, Tankred, who works for Arzte Ohne Grenzen (Doctors without Borders), and he came in to school this week to talk to Year 9 students about his work in some of the world's worst trouble spots.
During his PowerPoint presentation, he described the plight of refugees around the world and showed them before and after photos from Syria and Benghazi (in Libya), and from recent rescues at sea by the boat MSF Dignity 1, run by Doctors without Borders. 
According to Tankred's notes, since war broke out in Syria, the life expectancy of Syrians has declined from 70 to 55 years; 50% of Syrians have been displaced, the majority within Syria,and there is now a lost generation of children who have never known peace, 50% don’t go to school, have no home, and suffer from preventable diseases.
