Hege Knutstad Lund (d. 31 July 2015)

It is with great sorrow we received the message that our colleague Hege Knutstad Lund has passed away. She was critically injured in a motorcycle accident near Svolvær in Norway earlier in July.

Hege joined MSF in 2007, and worked mainly as Finance and Human Resources Coordinator in many MSF projects: Sudan, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Ukraine, Syria and the Philippines. She completed 11 missions spending more than 3,5 years in the field. She also worked at the Oslo office for a year in 2007/2008.

Hege was a hard working team member, a wonderful person and a highly respectful and respected colleague. She will be deeply missed.

Hege’s family has wished that everyone who knew Hege and worked with her in the field shall be informed about the accident and her sudden death. If you would like to send a message to the family please write an e-mail to Solveig Halvorsen solveig.halvorsen@legerutengrenser.no in the Norwegian HR department, and she will pass it on.
