Synopsis

Aid Worker by Louise Spilsbury

This book explores the life and work of aid workers all around the world. The book looks at people who work in places affected by natural disasters such as famine and earthquakes and those who work in dangerous conflict zones. We discover how people begin a career in aid work, the skills they need to be able to carry out their humanitarian roles, the challenges they face and the risks and rewards of their life-saving work. Readers can also find out how they could become an aid worker themselves. Careers That Save Lives explores the world of jobs that save or change lives, offering readers an in-depth look at these worthwhile and fulfilling roles. The series invites children to consider why each job is so important and what characteristics people might need to carry it out. An interesting and reflective career series for children aged 9+.
