    • Thank you for your kind understanding. 🙂 Being in that profession, I can relate to what challenges they face. They volunteer to help others in such a humanitarian way. Kind regards, Iris.


      • Indeed! August 19th will be World Humanitarian Day. One day to honour the work they do day in and day out. 😦


        • Glad that there is a day to mark World Humanitarian Day! 🙂 Organisations such as MSF are deserving of recognition of their tireless effort in going all out to help others in difficult places. Thank you so much. 🙂
