Aaron Rippenkroeger on working in Darfur - IRC Voices
Selflessness and dedication, even amidst overwhelming obstacles these are two of the qualities exhibited by IRC staff that made a lasting impression on Aaron Rippenkroeger, currently IRC's deputy vice president of US Programs. In this week's IRC Voices, Aaron recalls the year he spent working in South Darfur, and says that despite the challenges of working in overcrowded conditions, it turned out to be the most fulfilling work experience of my entire life.
