When I was in Bor, my height did bring me some interesting encounters.
 
During the three months in Bor, I never saw a patient nor their family shed a drop of tear. 
 
“Doctor, doctor! Please come immediately!” Mama Teresa, our head nurse grabbed my hand the second I jumped off the MSF car in front of the office. 
 
“Come, come!” she urged.
 
American medical doctor Theresa Chan is in Cambodia, based in MSF's hepatitis clinic in Phnom Penh.
Jonathan Whittall has been working in MSF’s newly opened field trauma hospital in a village to the south of Mosul for three weeks.
The recent civil war in South Sudan has been heating up and our surgical team at Bor has received a request for assistance from another MSF project located at Old Fangak. 
 
As a humanitarian aid worker, I have always had conflicting wishes. On the one hand, I hope to save more lives, but on the other hand I pray the world no longer need aid workers, there are no more wars or natural disasters.
