Rebecca works for MSF as a “flying” sexual violence reference person. She has been to MSF projects all over Africa, helping to set up or to improve the response to sexual violence in the communities where MSF works. Our project is lucky to have Rebecca's help for several weeks. She’s a gifted public speaker. One of her talks was so good that even one of our drivers asked for copies of her slides so he could remember everything she said.
Lucy and I are particularly fortunate that Rebecca is staying in the house where we live. She tells us stories about her work in Liberia, Chad, Uganda,and Eastern Europe. She's also side-splittingly funny and cooks a lovely macaroni and cheese. (Those buff arms are thanks to yoga, by the way).
