Wow. That was my impression of the Family Support Centre (FSC) run by MSF in Lae. After a 45-minute drive from the airport, I was met by a colleague, the cheerful Brazilian expat who supervises the Centre’s psycho-social counseling services, and taken on a tour around the facility.

After a 7-hour flight, I landed in Port Moresby yesterday. I was picked up by a driver and taken to the MSF office where I received a briefing from MSF Head of Mission in Papua New Guinea (PNG); and also got to meet with the rest of the mission coordination team.

It’s the second day back to work after the New Year break and 2012 is definitely off to a busy start! Amidst the hustle and bustle of day-to-day tasks is the excitement I am feeling and the preparations I am making for my upcoming field visit to the MSF projects in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
