Abstract:

This volume is a compilation that consists of 15 essays that seeks out international humanitarian workers and encourages them to tell their stories. In places that evoke scenes of unimaginable suffering and hardship, the human condition at its worst -- like Sudan, Rwanda, Somalia, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and the Gaza Strip -- this work highlights humanity at its best -- the capacity for generosity, self-sacrifice, and compassion shown by these dedicated men and women from many countries who leave behind their own comfort and security to face dangers, sorrows, and brutality that most of us cannot imagine -- in order to ease the suffering of others.
