We have made it through Advance Week here at Fieldbase and on Sunday were really excited to welcome new arrivals – Our Project Managers and Medics! Later in the expedition we are expecting the arrival of our Finance Officer Douglas, then James joins us on Phase 2 as Project Manager and finally Carla completes the Medic Team when she joins us on Phase 2 and 3.
