Humanitarian work: The untold story

Gísli Rafn Ólafsson gives us insight into the reality of the humanitarian aid worker, which is often enveloped in an aura of nobility.  

Gísli officially became a disaster geek over a decade ago, when he joined his two passions in life, information technology and disaster response. Today he helps responders get access to the internet in the most challenging locations of all, disaster zones. When not traveling the world responding to disasters, he enjoys spending time with his wife, five kids, and grandson. This talk was given at TEDxReykjavik.
