Heart of Darfur, Paperback / softback Book

Heart of Darfur Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Lisa arrives in Sudan full of determination to use her skills as a nurse to do something to ease the plight of the hundreds of thousands of people caught up in the civil war raging through Darfur.

She is working with Medecins Sans Frontieres, the international organisation that sends health workers to the most desperate places in the world.

The six months she spends on the mission will be the toughest of her life but will teach her some fundamental truths about what people are capable of, both good and bad, and about herself.

Lisa describes treating children with machete wounds, babies dying of chronic dehydration, girls giving birth at the age of 13 and old women too traumatised to carry on living.

Her relationships with her Sudanese colleagues are treasured and described in fascinating detail.

The book is exquisitely written, without sentiment but with a powerful and moving determination to show the suffering of the people of Darfur and to bear witness to their remarkable courage in the face of the most appalling situation.

This is the book to help us all understand the human story behind the newspaper headlines.
