I am a Belgian nurse, and first worked for Médecins du Monde in Africa, later working in Japan and China. I first worked for MSF in refugee camps in Hong Kong, then in Guatemala, Cameroon, and East Congo. In the meantime, I migrated to West Australia where I now live a quiet life in the countryside. I participated last year in this event in Melbourne and Adelaide. It was very “eye opening” for a lot of Australians living in a hostile political climate towards refugees. I am very honoured to share this experience with Canadians interested in the plight of refugees.
