2011 Canadian Tour Dates

Martha Gartley

I work as a Water and Sanitation Specialist with MSF.  I’ve 3 missions under my belt:  9 months in Baraka, DRC; 3 months in Haiti for the cholera emergency; and, most recently, 2 months in Liberia addressing needs associated with the influx of refugees from Côte d’Ivoire.

I’m a civil engineer (McGill), and after working in consulting for several years, I obtained an M.Eng.Sc. (University of Melbourne) to nail the theory behind water and sanitation in developing contexts.  Thereafter I worked on projects in India and Papua New Guinea where my passion for my current work really ignited.

There’s nothing more amazing than working alongside nationals where the fruits of your labour are realized almost instantly.  I feel honoured to be a part of the MSF movement, and wake up every day proud of where I am and what I’m doing.  I’m very excited to be a part of the Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City 2011.
