My name is Leah and I’m a women’s health nurse practitioner. I live in Massachusetts with my family. I have traveled with the International Organization for Women and Development to Kigali, Rwanda in February every year since 2016. This blog is my travel journal.
I have always been interested in international health issues, but like many people, I was nervous about the risks of traveling to under-served areas. And while travel is never risk-free, Rwanda has become on of the safest countries in Africa over the past 10 years.
