So.... questions to answers by yourself

1. What do you do?
2. Is it clinical?
3. Who will give you the LoR (Cheif of the red cross center??)

I need these info to help you better....

Hey thanks for reply.
1. Red cross society holds different health check up and blood bank camps in different districts. So i am working in that camps doctors team.
2. Ya its clinical. More of a community medicine field.
3. Head of red cross society is not a doctor. She is government official. But i can get LOR from head of that red cross branch or doctor of blood bank and health care department. Which will be more appropriate?

Default Got it...

It will be a huge plus if you were stationed in the US. But please do share your work in your CV (it weights good), Also if you are short of LoR then keep that as an option.

one thing before i forget, make sure the LoR you are getting is printed on Red Cross Letter head.

Good Luck
