About this work

Also known as

Rebelle sans frontières. English

Description

A biting and fascinating review of humanitarian aid, this account of volunteer life working for Doctors Without Borders illuminates the logistics of building camps for refugees and delivering clean water to towns amid the violence, abuse, and injustice in developing countries. From a Malawi refugee camp to truck smuggling over the Kurdish border, Marc Vachon has seen the power struggles behind the scenes throughout the world and he gives rare insight into the problems of trying to help the displaced, sick, or less fortunate.
