Sierra Leone is the 72nd country I’ve visited, personally and professionally. As I board the boat from the airport to the capital, Freetown, I am hit by how unique its ‘welcome’ is: palm trees sway against the beach, the waves crash against our vessel as we speed across the sea and the buildings ahead show a bustling capital city in the distance.

Last year I was given the incredible opportunity to work on World Vision’s Syria crisis response in the Middle East. At that time, the crisis had already been going for over four years and there were almost four million refugees. Now, as my time working on the Syria crisis response comes to a close, the number of refugees is nearly five million and the crisis has continued for over half a decade. Lately, as I prepare to head home to Australia, I’ve been reflecting on the...

It’s father’s day this weekend, and I was happy to see my three year old daughter come home from nursery with a father’s day card.  We put in an envelope together with some photographs and posted it this afternoon, one of many efforts to engage her father as she grows up. I’m a single mother, and have been from an early stage in her life. On top of that I work full time as a technical advisor for World Vision, and am frequently deployed to countries around the globe...

 When I was given this assignment I was afraid at first. After all, I had heard of many stories about Somalia and lets say they were not very pleasant and almost frightening. But here I was, heading to this very place.

After boarding the plane to Somaliland, I must admit that the intensity of my prayers doubled. All my senses were aware of where I was headed to and my instinctive told me it was not as good as home. After all, they say ‘home is best’ and...

I have. Late last year, one Friday afternoon, as part of a personal “training drill” in the World Vision Australia office, I initiated a food-fight style, sanitary-pad “fight” around the office. To my complete surprise, my male colleagues embraced the opportunity to participate, learn and openly discuss the problems that face many girls in World Vision’s programmes daily (and of course, ensured...
