FOR the past seven years, Monica Parker has been working in the Karen jungles of Myanmar as a midwife.

Before she heads home to NSW, she is stopping in Perth to give a few presentations about her work with Partners Relief and Development.

Ms Parker will speak about what she has experienced working with limited resources, in very basic living and sometimes dangerous war zone conditions, at Cornerstone Church in Joondalup this Saturday from 10am.

“Midwifery in the jungle is an amazing adventure, it certainly keeps you on the edge,” she said.

Cost is $5. Call Jeff on 0417 392 343.
