Paralegals, who ensure that during droughts and in the aftermath of floods the most marginalized get access to government services and assistance, are now doing the same thing. They are linking up with the local government to ensure the most vulnerable are receiving emergency supplies so that they don’t starve while they stay home, or deplete flood-time stockpiles.
And yet, while we ensure people stay home, and that they are equipped to stay protected, it’s a reality that the health sector is under tremendous pressure, which will continue to increase. We provide quality healthcare in some of the most marginalized areas in the world, and now more so than ever, these communities will depend on our services. So our hospital ships will continue to operate, as will our land hospitals, static clinics and health posts.
