" The most satisfying part of my job is hearing from refugees what a difference Oxfam’s support has made to them. We run regular listening groups where the community can give us constructive feedback. Recently a grandfather told me: "We are happy that you come and you listen to us. Thank you for the work you do." That made me feel very happy. That is my reward."
