Chained to the desk

Well, not really. I'm hopping up and down every few minutes to track someone down to talk about Kenya, Somalia or Ethiopia. I've almost been in Nairobi for a week, and the response to the regional drought is going to be massive. Thankfully for me, two of our country programs (Kenya and Somalia) are in the same building as our regional office, which makes chasing after people so much easier.

There's been lots of press coverage of the situation in the region; if you haven't heard, this is the worst drought in 60 years. So there's a lot of work to be done, and I'm looking forward to the challenge of not only looking after three countries, but working with other affiliates of the organisation. Yup, it's going to be VERY challenging!!
