Humanitarian worker Cokie van der Velde was named a Woman of the Year in 2015 for her frontline work in the fight against Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DMC), Guinea and Liberia. She has devoted the last two decades to volunteer with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). She travelled to 14 countries with MSF, working as a logistician and water sanitation specialist. Her latest mission was with the IRC earlier this year when she worked in health facilities in the DMC during the latest Ebola outbreak.
