Life in the field



What’s it like to be part of a team responding to a medical emergency?

Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) employs thousands of people in its projects around the world. Some are international staff, living in unfamiliar environments, far from home. Others are locals, working to help people in their own communities.

Our bloggers share their experiences of everyday life in the field, from what to do on a day off in the DRC, to how to cook a cheesecake in Sierra Leone.
