Robyn White - UN and humanitarian work

We were setup to mainly look after UN troops. There was 5,500, I think, supporting the UN too at that stage. So that was our primary role. But my recollection is that we did look after the troops, but most of the time, they were only very short stays.

So a lot of our work was humanitarian, looking after Rwandan citizens who'd, my recollection, a lot of them had had trauma from standing on landmines or something like that. So that's my enduring memory of a lot of what I did over there.
