OTHER PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE 2010-2014
Moved to the United States of America, studying for the USMLE, CNA training and certificate, and provided live-in and shared-living care.
Moved to the Netherlands, went higher education institutions and later back to medical school but in the Dutch Language. Worked as a medical doctor in my native country of Liberia; conducted successful medical and surgical interventions in inpatient and outpatient departments and in the operating room for many years.
Initiated relief operations during the Liberian civil war and recruited relief workers, including medical doctors, to serve thousands of internally displaced people and refugees over seven years as a self-appointed relief and humanitarian manager. Coordinated the activities of international non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, World Food Program, Doctors without Border of Belgium and the Netherlands, Catholic Relief Services, and Save the Children, etc and national NGO activities.
Served as a liaison between local authorities and NGOs to effectively serve over a million people and helped to keep relief workers safe. Assigned regional locations to various organizations in order to prevent overlapping of services and resources. Had monthly meetings with all organizations involved to assess progress and overcome challenges for the delivery of food, medical services, safe drinking water, and sanitation services to hospitals, displaced people and refugee camps and villages. Helped to plan and do trauma counseling training for health and welfare workers.
