Young woman, big responsibility: She manages 160 deminers and support staff who clean up cluster bombs and other explosives in Quang Tri Province
Eight months ago Ms. Nguyen Thi Dieu Linh was promoted to Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) Operations Manager at Project RENEW in Quang Tri Province. The 32-year-old is the first woman to be selected for this position in Vietnam. Linh now manages 160 technicians and support staff who make up 26 teams that are deployed every day. Team members map confirmed hazardous areas for clearance and provide EOD response to safely dispose of cluster munitions and unexploded ordnance throughout the province. Linh spoke with Ngo Xuan Hien and Chuck Searcy.
