Being an aid worker is not easy, and that comes across more than clearly in these Médecins Sans Frontieres blog posts by Trish Newport. She's a Canadian nurse in Chad on her 5th MSF mission. From the challenges of treating malnutrition in remote villages to the challenge of accidentally locking herself in an outhouse, Trish writes frankly about her work and her life, which is why I'm recommending her posts. This is an organizational blog -- not a personal one -- that honestly depicts aid worker life. Trish is leaving Chad soon and I'll miss her stories. But I look forward to reading about her next MSF mission, if she does one.
