'Civil war has broken out in a third-world country ravaged by poverty, crime and disease. A separatist group has staged their independence from the government, sparking conflict within the southern district of the country. Guerrilla warfare is widespread and an estimated 150,000 people are now homeless. UN intervention has been initiated and negotiations have begun, however, the death toll has still reached three thousand since the beginning of the conflict in September 2009. Aid organisations are now preparing to send volunteers into the worst effected areas in a bid to curb the fatalities.'

When asked what they would like to be when they grow up most children will answer that they want to be a singer or a dancer.

I wanted to be an Aid worker.

We, as civilians do not realize the challenges facing soldiers and volunteers who travel to war torn countries. Your story taps into the trials faced. Great job in providing the public with the realities these folks face while assisting those in need.
