Intercross the Podcast: Episode #5 Being Female in South Sudan with Deepmala Mahla & Alyona Synenko

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we speak with two women working in one of the most dangerous countries in the world for aid workers, South Sudan. Deepmala Mahla serves as Country Director for Mercy Corps and Alyona Synenko is the ICRC's Communications Delegate, both located in Juba.  In honor of International Women's Day, join us for a frank discussion (and our first Skype podcast!) about being female in the humanitarian field, the women they admire most and the challenges women face living in a country in conflict.
