Tell your story

I am collecting stories about the lives, concerns, challenges, and hopes of local humanitarian health workers in conflict zones and during political unrests. From hospital directors to ambulance drivers, to nurses, doctors, administrators, and first aiders. Storytellers are free to choose the content they want to share, but we would love to hear how the conflict or the political unrest affected their lives and security, as well as how they dealt with that. 

Their stories of resilience, bravery, and compassion need to be widely heard to enhance global solidarity and to help in reducing violence against health care. 

These stories may be edited, published and shared.

Tell your story
Tips for telling a great story
  • Tell your story as if you were talking to a friend or a relative. Make it personal.
  • Add photos! It is best if the first photo you add is a nice image of yourself so that people can see you as they listen to or read your story.
Tips for audio recording
  • You can re-record as many times as you want. Take a couple of practice runs until it feels more natural talking into your computer.
  • Try not to use a pre-written script so that your story sounds as natural as possible. It is ok if it is not perfect.
  • Try to speak as clearly as possible, and get as close to the microphone as you can.
  • Try to find a quiet place with no background noise. It is even better if the room has carpet. This will reduce the amount of echo on the recording.
