MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A new traveling exhibition about the global refugee crisis is now in the Mid-South. Doctors Without Borders created the exhibition to raise awareness about the challenges facing 65 million displaced people around the area.

Called "Forced from Home," the exhibition uses virtual reality documentaries and pictures set in countries where are forced from their homes.

One organizer tells Local 24 why they often visit schools.

“Our focus on educational institutions is because the high school students, the college students, these are the people that are gonna go out and make changes in the world, and we feel it's important that they know some of the problems that are happening in the world right now,” said Giless De Gilles.

The Forced from Home trailer will be at Harding Academy in Memphis Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. From there, it will head to Senatobia Public Library from noon to 4:00 p.m. May 12th and 13th.
