New Field Coordinator
Nuria (at left) is our new Field Coordinator. She is replacing Dolors (at right), who has been the project coordinator for over a year. Dolors is returning to Barcelona for a rest until she heads out on her next project (she just finished her 7th).
Nuria works as a nurse in the Canary Islands between missions. Some people might consider her brave-- she brought her two young children with her to Guatemala. Adriana (playing in ocean, at left) is six; Carlos just turned one. They are lovely children. All the same, I am relieved that I don't have two toddlers as roommates. MSF pays for a separate apartment for Nuria and her kids, a baby-sitter, and living expenses. Their father is doctor who currently works in Jordan.
