First Field Trip

July 25, 2009 at 11:42 am 2 comments

A few weeks back, I went on my first field trip to explore the process by which humanitarian agencies provide aid. My goodness. The logistics and the scale of the endeavour is not to be believed. In addition to having many meetings in the area, I visited a food and non-food items distribution base as well as a humanitarian hub where people pick up their aid items. My respect for people working in the field, already high, has increased ten-fold. And my compassion for the over 2 million internally displaced people has deepened considerably. I won’t post pictures of these areas, for security as well as to ensure the dignity of the people suffering so greatly but here is one with me and the courageous guards who were protecting me while in the field as well as some pics of aid products from Canada.

    Finally, some connection! Been trying to use your gmail/un emails, but to no avail. Thought you had slipped off the face of the Earth, though I could tell from the UN site that you were in Pakistan. Great to have found your site! Keep up the good work and keep safe!
