  Refugees in Benaco, Tanzania, 1994 For the last twenty years I've been working with refugees: from camps in Southeast Asia, to refugee emergencies in Turkey, Yugoslavia and Africa. Currently I'm working in Geneva at the Headquarters of the UNHCR in the Staff Development Section.
  Lois & Solon Here I am with my husband Solon and one of my four-legged kids, a Sheltie named Cara. Solon is on an extended mission with Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) in Southern Sudan.
  Lois & friends at the Iris Gardens When I'm not busy working, I'm out with friends and family seeing the sites, watching movies, walking dogs and laughing.
