MSF staff can be away from home for up to 12 months at a time providing emergency healthcare in some of the most challenging environments. So travelling light and only packing the essentials is a must.

The 3rd of October will be remembered as one of the darkest days in MSF's history. On this day in 2015, US airstrikes killed 42 people and destroyed the MSF trauma hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan.

In this special episode of Everyday Emergency, we look back on the attack one year on with Dr Kass Thomas – an intensive care specialist from Australia – who was in the hospital the night of the attack.

Visit msf.org.uk/kunduzpodcast to hear more from Kass.

"Everyday Emergency" is a podcast from MSF. In each episode, we bring you true stories from the frontline of humanitarian emergencies across the world. From the conflict in Syria to the refugee crisis in Europe, we’ll be talking to people with some incredible stories that may just change your outlook on life, or at least, for a moment, put things into perspective.

In each podcast you’ll hear a true story written by an MSFer on the ground, read by an actor. We’ll then get them into the studio at MSF HQ for a chat about their time with MSF. Subscribe through iTunes or your favourite podcast provider, and find out more at msf.org.uk/podcasts
