    Going the extra mile for our team and the people we serve

    Day 191

    Help in a Box

    After being with the Thailand team for a couple days, I feel like I need to give the Thailand team a shout out – they’re amazing.

    They travel long distances, work tirelessly, and are so dedicated to our mission of treating and preventing the spread of really destructive diseases, like tuberculosis and malaria.

    Their work is so important. But sometimes it can lead to a couple of scrapes and bruises.

    When you’re on the go, you need something that travels with you in case minor accidents happen. And the last thing you need is to run into someone who needs medical attention and not be able to support it.

    That’s why this team wanted first aid kits! We thought that was a fantastic idea.

    Wai Tun, our friend from yesterday, was delighted!

    “If I go to the field and someone is getting hurt or needs treatment, then I can help. This is also good for my family and neighbors!”

    These first aid kids not only help our team stay safe and well taken care of, they’re going the extra mile for the people we serve too.


    Meet Jon!

    Hello hello! My name is Jon Atwell and I’m the Roving Correspondent at Alight. So much of what I do involves going to program sites and spending time with my colleagues around the world, and the people we serve. I get to capture photos, create video, and share stories of the incredible people I meet. And, I’ve gotten the chance to do the doable with many of our teams in many places. This time around, I’m so excited to tell you about our incredible team in Thailand!
