As a student nurse, MSF field workers like yourself are my heroes! The world is a better place because you are selfless enough to be away from your family and home during the holiday period. Take a moment for yourself and have a beautiful holiday and new year :)
Megan Underwood
As you read this, please.. sit down, close your eyes for 40 seconds and know how many peoples lives you have affected for the better this past year, how many faces have seen you as a sign of hope and gratefulness in torn-apart communities. Then remember how greatly you're missed by family and friends back home.. and how much they wish for your safety and happiness and how proud they are of you. I hope wherever you are in the world, your home away from home is filled with warm, kind and spirited souls that make this time wonderful for you. You do such a wonderful job. Be proud of how far you have come. Merry Christmas :)

Hi there, please know there are people thinking of you and your patients and colleagues and admiring all your great work especially over the traditional holiday period but all year round too. One day I hope to join you and help people in greater need than my current work mates haha. Everything is relative I tell them and all of us can learn from the survivors with whom you work everyday. Hope you get time to celebrate in your own way this season and best wishes for 2017 (we all need that!).

Merry Christmas to any midwives out there. You are awesome!
Thank you to all the MSFDWB field workers who, through incredible commitment and resilience, provide a vast range of services and support to people in war-torn and other countries of challenge. You go where many fear to tread - and for those of us who hope to one day do what you - you provide the inspiration to strive towards this goal. Happy & safe holiday season.
Mel
To whichever of my role models is reading this, You are amazing. MSF is an amazing organisation that aligns so closely with my values, and I hope one day I will join you. The life of a field worker must be such a mix of intense up and downs, and I hope that you have more ups then downs over the holiday period and the rest of the year. I don't even know you, but I feel so proud of you and everything you've achieved so far, and everything you will accomplish in the future. Maybe one day we can work together. Until then, happy holidays, I hope you feel supported and inspired even if you're far from home.

Well I guess I don't have a right point to start at. It is suppose to be simple Christmas massage right. How can I do that without thinking of your working conditions and harsh environments you live in to provide much required services. I can not imagine the world without people like you, who strive to make it better in places where the others see no hope. A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL GUYS,, GOD BLESS YOU !!

Manel Christine Cassar
Hi, In 1999 I remember travelling in Cambodia and seeing MSF workers in the field. At that time you had just been awarded your Nobel peace prize. I felt a strange sense of vicarious pride in your achievements and have been inspired by the work that you do ever since. Two weeks ago I graduated from medical school and it is my dream to join you one day when I have served my apprenticeship here in Oz. I appreciate that the work is hard, but know that all of us back home take enormous pride in your work. Merry Christmas

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2017?

To All at the Dasht-e- Barchi project, Thank you for making my partner Sam Brophy-Williams so at home. I've loved hearing the stories of the great work you all do, the Dari lessons, the informal French lessons, the camaraderie and most importantly the humility with which you all do you work. You will all be missed this festive season, sending you lots of love (especially to you Sam) Merry Christmas and a Very happy New year to you all!

You're all amazing! Every New Zealander is in ore of those Kiwis who give up their time to help those in need. Most of you are in countries where the support systems often aren't as strong as our own and are really making a difference. NZ will be thinking of you over the Christmas break and wishing you a merry Christmas

Just a quick note to say how much admiration I have for you and the utterly selfless work that you do year round, but especially at this time of the year. I can only imagine how tough it is to be away from family and friends over the holidays, but the gift of health and vital treatment that you are giving to those with whom you work all over the world is truly unique and I've no doubt those family members and friends are chest-burstingly proud of your generosity. I certainly cannot think of a greater example to set during this the season of giving and though I realise it's cliched, for what it's worth I humbly thank you for making the world a better place. Wishing you peace, happiness and a well earned beverage or six on your return!
Fiona
Thank you for all the hard and selfless work you are doing. What would all these people do without you? ? so much respect for you ,I wish you all the and happy new year wherever you are.

"During this festive season of giving, let us take time to slow down and enjoy the simple things. May this wonderful time of the year touch your heart in a special way. Wishing you much happiness not just today, but throughout the New Year." Thank You being at the field during this holiday season, by staying, you have already touched many people's heart.
Wei San Tang
The Christmas and New Year period is a wonderful time of year! And, there is no better way to celebrate the festive season than among friends. This time of year is for celebrating, whether it's religious celebration or enjoying quality time with family and friends; recounting the great times and maybe learning from the not-so-great times over the past year, as well as preparing for the new year ahead. As we join with loved ones to share in the spirit of the Christmas season, we are reminded of life's most important things - family, friends, health, wellbeing and community. Christmas can be a difficult time for some, so let's reach out to support those who are less fortunate. One of the best things about our organisation is the very real sense of community spirit. I have no doubt that our community and Christmas spirit will shine bright. I would like to say a special thank you to those in the communities who give their time at Christmas and throughout the year to helping others. And, thank you to my fellow friends for their valued support and continued hard work. Together we are working with the communities to make a difference. A very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, and may you have a happy, safe and prosperous new year. Alfred Wakeya - PNG
