Good bye Tsiroanomandidy and Madagascar

Our mission in Madagascar has come to an end. Almost nine months ago we arrived our host district Tsiroanomandidy, ready for and excited about the journey we had ahead of us. 

Working as Youth Delegates in another Red Cross National Society and an unfamiliar context has been a challenging but rewarding experience. We have learned a lot about the Malagasy culture, the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and about ourselves - both personally and professionally.  The Red Cross youth engagement in Tsiroanomandidy has increased during our mission and we are proud to have contributed to strengthen the youth volunteers' capacity to meet the needs of the most vulnerable. We highly appreciate the cooperation we have had with all Red Cross volunteers and staff and we want to thank each and everyone who have contributed to make these past months in Madagascar and Tsiroanomandidy very memorable. 

Convinced that we will benefit from this experience in all of our future endeavours, we return to Norway with new skills and knowledge, good memories, new friends and motivation to continue our humanitarian engagement within the Red Cross.

Finally, once again we have filmed one second every day for about a month and we now want to end this blog by sharing these moments with you. Thank you so much for being interested in our work and life as Youth Delegates in Madagascar and enjoy the movie.
