Libya remains one of the most complex and dangerous countries for travel. This North African country remains cut off from most of the world, with barely any international flights into the country.
Taking missions of this nature into Libya is hugely cumbersome and risky. For each such deployment, our programmes department must arrange a team of diverse volunteer medical professionals from various parts of the world. We also need to ship medical supplies into the country. Such missions are tricky even under normal circumstances, and when you add armed conflict and political instability into the mix, it's a different ball game altogether.
"But we remain committed to our mission," said Miah.
