From theatre nurse to field coordinator
Rachel Marsden graduated as an operating theatre nurse in 2004 and joined Medecins Sans Frontieres a few years later. She recently returned from two months in Tanzania as Emergency Coordinator, where she responded to a cholera epidemic and provided support to Burundian refugees fleeing political violence.

Nurse Sophie Short writes about her time volunteering with GGC Volunteers in Vietnam. GGC volunteers mostly work with kids with disabilities and cleft palates, many living in orphanages.
