Voices From the Field: Abdullah
Abdullah, REACH Assessment Network Coordinators’ Team Leader in Turkey
I have been working for REACH for a year and a half, and have grown to consider REACH my second home. The teamwork at REACH has turned my colleagues into my family. Prior to my work with REACH, I didn’t realize that collecting data and working on reports could make such a difference on the ground, but after working with REACH I can say that it has a strong impact and I’m very convinced that this part of the humanitarian work is one of the most important parts ever.
Working with REACH didn’t really feel like a job, it was more like attending university and learning every day. The lessons and experience I leaned and gained have been incredible and this makes me feel very proud of myself and of my work. At REACH, I learned what humanitarian work is and how to be a humanitarian worker.
