Yemen | "The rewards outweigh the challenges"

"Hello, my name is Elma Wong. I’m an anaesthetist from Birmingham. I’m just back from my fourth assignment in Yemen with MSF.

"I was working in a tent hospital near Mocha – a region that has seen heavy fighting. The local health system is broken.

"If we weren’t there, there wouldn’t be anything to support these people. That’s the sad, devastating truth."

In this video, Elma describes her experiences working in Yemen throughout the course of the war.
