As well as the new job, I’ve also been appointed a trustee at Medical Emergency Relief International, aka Merlin. It’s the best of good causes:
Merlin specialises in health, saving lives in times of crisis and helping to rebuild shattered health services.
I’ve never had any operational dealings with a charity before, and the people I’ve met so far have amazed me with their dedication to the cause and their appetite for helping people who are desperately in need. I hope I can help out a bit, particularly with their digital channel. If you’ve got any suggestions and ideas, or just want to donate to an organisation that’s treating literally thousands of sick people every single day, do drop me a line at lloyd [at] lllj.net.
