In N’djamena the customs staff pulled me aside when the x-ray scanning machine noticed the [portable] ultrasound. I explained I worked for MSF and motioned the shape of a pregnant woman’s abdomen and how the ultrasound would check the situation of babies inside mammas. To my delight, and with some bravado and a sweeping of the hand by the customs officials, they shooed me to the exit with all my bags intact, and said, ‘He works for MSF, let him go.’
Raghu finds that working for MSF can have some unexpected benefits, like being rushed through airport security. Please leave your questions and comments for Raghu in the comments box below his blog post.
