BARELY a month after she joined the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) as a volunteer, a medical undergraduate was sent to an earthquake-hit region in China for relief operations.
But Ms Wu Wei, 20, a China national studying at the National University of Singapore (NUS), was not deterred.
She said: “I got a phone call from SRC and was given an hour to make a decision. I felt unprepared, but I thought it was a good opportunity for me to experience relief work in a disaster zone.”
She and four others visited the disaster zone last Friday and returned on Monday.
