Elizabeth - South Sudan

"I joined the Red Cross in order to help my people. We need to have humanity in our hearts.”

Elizabeth has been a first aid volunteer in the city of Yambio for some four years. She had to perform first aid on her brother after he fell from a tree and broke his arm while was collecting fruit for the family.

Elizabeth treated her brother and took him to a health clinic. The doctors said if she hadn't helped her brother’s arm would likely have been in a much worse state.
