A year in South Sudan

October 2013 - October 2014

 
 


  
     


Because of the conflict that started in South Sudan in December 2013, the time I spent  there was very intense and hard for various reasons. It was my first mission as a field delegate and it was definitely a hands-on experience... but I learned a lot about emergency work and about myself.

I also met some wonderful people among the national and international colleagues and grew very fond of my team. It was hard to leave them at the end of October 2014, after almost 13 months.
