I was born and raised in Winnipeg and am (by degree at least) an engineer. I finished my first mission in DRC this spring after 14 months of amazing people and experiences in South Kivu. My job as technical logistician (tech log) was to support the medical team by providing clean water, power, transport as well as other things in the medical facilities. These included the hospital, health centres, cholera treatment centres, tuberculosis centres and any and all other emergencies interventions that arose including a measles treatment centre and mobile clinics. The amazing Congolese people I met and worked with give me the strength and inspiration to continue my work.
