A visit from Sienna Miller

Actress Sienna Miller recently returned from visiting International Medical Corps’ programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In her diary from the trip, Sienna wrote, “International Medical Corps is an incredible organization that is providing health care and support to people in dire need…The work being done is overwhelming, the problem so huge. The wards are constructed under makeshift tents and the drugs are constantly running out. No matter how many photos or documentaries we watch, nothing can compare to the experience of being in those camps. The smell alone is unforgettable. But the people smile, and the looks on their faces when they hear that we are trying to try and help is one of hope. That is often all they have.”
