After returning from the mission in 2006, she started setting up the representation office in Guangzhou, and worked as communications coordinator in MSF emergency relief project of the Sichuan earthquake. In 2009, she departed for MSF mission again to work as Human Resources Coordinator in the Democratic Republic of Congo for 13 months.
 
Introduction of “Access to the Danger Zone”
In all armed conflicts, it is the civilians that suffer most – gunshot, bomb blasts, burns, rapes and other kinds of violence. With most infrastructures being demolished, including clinics and hospitals, wounded people have no access to any medical care. Even common injuries or illnesses can quickly become serious and life-threatening. What’s worse, working in conflict zones may sometimes put aid workers under threats who may become the target of the violence. 
 
So, you may wonder – how can MSF carry out the relief work in those “insecure” locations?
 
This documentary may give you an insight into that question – it provides a harrowing look at the challenges of delivering humanitarian aid in armed conflicts. You will see how MSF works in Afghanistan, Somalia and Democratic Republic of Congo, where armed conflicts have been ongoing for several years.
