Day 3 ... So, what is it really like to work in a war zone as an expatriate doing humanitarian work?
While guiding the tours through our Refugee Camp exhibit, I've had a lot of people ask the very simple question, "Do you really feel safe?"
In reality, the answer to the question is not always so straightforward. It changes from country to country, mission to mission, day to day. On each of our missions we have multiple levels of people working to maintain relationships with the various leaders in the countries and local communities in which we're providing medical care. Along with being consistent in providing good care, these relationships are key to our security.
