Description : An ICRC employee relates: "Ronny is a clan leader, who have been involved in a vicious tribal fight with another clan in a village called Kikita II. ICRC employees have to gain the trust of people like Ronny to access the people who need our help. I’m always amazed by the amount of groundwork that goes into these operations – the teams try to leave nothing to chance, a tall order in “the land of the unexpected”, as some Papua New Guinea people like to call their country."
