"The women here are heroes and for every one that walks through our door we give 100%. I am proud of the impact we make."
In 2010, Sam’s third MSF posting was to a Congolese conflict zone, where she supervised a
maternity hospital, in which her team delivered more than 3,000 babies, as well as providing antenatal care, family planning and care for rape survivors.
