Dear Friends,

It is time to tell you about our February UNA LunchBox talk.  The talk will take place on Friday 21st February at 1pm in the Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW.  Our talk this month will be about the activities of that wonderful organistation: Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF).  Medical teams from MSF act fast to save peoples lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics in over 65 countries around the world.

On any given day, there are over 30,000 inspiring doctors, nurses, logisticians and other project staff working for MSF overseas.  Our UK office is responsible for 300 staff and many of them are happy to share their stories once they have returned home.   And this is the case with our speaker today, Christopher Peskett.

Christopher is a Registered General Nurse who has worked in the field for over 10 years, in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.  He had a variety of roles: nursing manager, research coordinator, medical team leader and project coordinator.  No one could be better equipped to give us a valuable insight into the activities of Medecins Sans Frontiers.  Don’t miss it!

best wishes,

Marguerite Finn

UNA Norwich
