I found out about the Silverlinig charity through Kuarimbi Expeditions who were looking for a medic who is a specialist in extreme sports for their second Namibia mission I have completed every trip since with them.
This is my fourth mission with them. My fears for this mission were the remoteness of the mission and the challenges for definitive care. My hopes for the mission were that it was challenging enough to overcome personal challenges.
My hopes have been realized as the charity had done an excellent risk assessment of all ABI survivors going on the trip with fantastic buddy support.
My personal achievements are being part of the team and see how the team dynamics changed after each incident we had. Observing natural leaderships being honored and excepted.
My most memorable moment is how quickly norming and performing was achieved.
Everyone had a good level of personal growth and got to go home safe and well.
