It is often said in the humanitarian field that the success of a response hinges on logistics. If First Responders can’t reach those in greatest need with the right supplies, we fall short on our key mission: to save lives and relieve suffering in the world’s toughest environments. International Medical Corps Roving Logistics Coordinator John Mbusa shares his experiences of working quietly, but efficiently, far from the limelight to fight famine in two conflict-torn countries—Nigeria and South Sudan.
