The humanitarian organisation, Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) delivers emergency aid to victims of armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and those who lack reliable health care. Each year, more than 2,500 volunteer doctors, nurses, and other professionals join locally-hired staff to provide medical aid in more than eighty countries. At the forefront are the volunteer doctors who risk their lives to perform surgery, establish hospitals and clinics, run nutrition programmes, and train local medical personnel. This book follows these volunteer doctors as they risk their health and lives to treat patients in desperate need. Combining engaging text with dramatic colour photographs from around the world, Hope in Hell examines the lives of individual Medecins Sans Frontieres volunteer medical professionals. Firefly is donating a USD50,000 charitable payment to Medecins Sans Frontieres upon the publication of the book. A fascinating and often harrowing account of the men and women who struggle to improve the lives of people in desperate need. Gripping accounts of medical workers who volunteer to serve in some of the world's most dangerous hotspots.
