Liu Mei, a 44-year-old Chinese woman, worked in Darfur for more than two years as the director of the food aid program of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

From February 2005 to October 2007, she was responsible for distributing food to 100,000 refugees in Kars, south of Darfur, Sudan. With 10 local employees, she was the only foreigner and the only woman in any of the 11 WFP offices in Darfur.

"When I first learned that I would be sent to Darfur, I was scared. I knew the experience would change my life," Liu said.
