Farhiya Ali, Finance Manager

 I've worked at Oxfam for 16 years, and as finance manager most of my work involves finance and logistics. But of course sometimes I also find myself involved in Oxfam's direct work.

One time, we were able to distribute water to a population of 200,000 people. They had no water source, and many of those people had been displaced and so were not living in their own homes. I was part of the team that contributed towards that, and am very proud of this work. I think Oxfam relieves a lot of suffering and has a lot of impact in Somalia.
