More than a job

Jackie Macadam meets Christian Aid’s country manager for Bolivia.

EMMA Donlan wouldn’t trade the view from her window for anything – she overlooks the beautiful mountain vista of Bolivia.

“I love Bolivia,” she says. “There’s something about the place – the best way I can put it is that I like the person I am in Bolivia. Bolivia is breathtaking.”

Which is handy, because Emma is the Christian Aid Bolivia manager, and has been living there with her Bolivian husband, Rolando, and their two children for the past 20 years.

She didn’t start off in Bolivia. “I am originally from Manchester,” she says. “I had an inspiring Spanish teacher who opened my eyes to human rights abuses round the world, especially in South America, and joined a small Amnesty group.

“That led me to doing Latin American Studies at Liverpool University and taking a year out to travel South America as part of my course. I volunteered in an orphanage at La Paz and set up a volunteer programme for future students.
