Almost a year in South Sudan

15/11/2017ofCéline Neuenschwander

Living for almost a year in a civil war zone, the situation seems hopeless and a resolution to the conflict is a long way off. This is exactly what Martin Markovic experienced. He was in South Sudan with the International Committee of the Red Cross whose primary objective is to minimize the impact of war on the population. Now back in Switzerland, the 33-year-old tells us about his day-to-day life, which is hard for us to imagine in Switzerland, about working for an aid organization and about what makes negotiations on the ground so difficult.
