Kim Clausen is the field coordinator for the Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) search and rescue boat the Bourbon Argos, in the Mediterranean.
Tens of thousands of people fleeing violence have taken the extremely risky boat trip towards Europe this year alone. Their search for safety is one of the stories we discuss in Forced From Home, a touring exhibition featuring stories from our field workers, as well as 360-degree video and virtual reality documentaries that show the realities faced by refugees, asylum-seekers, and other displaced people around the world.

Ilse had muscular dystrophy and was an inspiring, selfless worker on behalf of people with disabilities, both in the workplace and beyond.
One of her goals was to create a comprehensive directory such as this that would be of value to all South Africans with disabilities.
Before she died (in 2006), Ilse worked for several years on gathering information for this purpose.
This was a massive undertaking, especially as it was not done full-time.
Nonetheless, Ilse opted to include as much information in each entry as she could, which has obvious advantages for the user, although inevitably the details included are liable to change with time.
