A strong team is vitally important to us, as we have to overcome the challenges of distance, culture and poor communication networks. We are proud that we have developed strong bonds both here in the UK and on the ground in South Sudan. Most importantly our success has been built from real friendships and relationships, which promote integration, trust and commitment.
