New Zealand woman to direct World Vision Iraq operations

Christchurch born aid worker Judy Moore will take over as operations director for World Vision's Iraq programme from Jan 11, 2004.

For the past three months Ms Moore, 54, has been on secondment in Mosul overseeing operations from an office hidden behind concrete blocks and a concrete wall to deter attacks from car bombs or rocket propelled grenades.
