    schema:reviewBody ""It is while in Uganda as a young and idealistic medical student that Richard Heinzl hears his true calling: to set up a chapter of Doctors Without Borders in his native Canada." "As a prerequisite to fulfilling his Medecins Sans Frontieres dream, Heinzl is set to a war-ravaged town in Cambodia to work for a year in the field to earn his wings with the organization. Cambodia Calling is this young doctor's story of setback and accomplishment in the exotic splendor of a remote and dangerous part of the world." "Compelling and visceral, Cambodia Calling offers a rare insight into the work and lives of MSF in the field. The author brings to life the isolated and impoverished village of Sisophon, where he works with locals to save lives in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge civil war. Heinzl's experiences are peopled with a fascinating array of characters, many of them survivors of a brutal regime, who bring powerful insights to bear on war, madness and mortality. During his time in Cambodia, Heinzl bonds with the villagers, all the while facing obstacles of war and his own self-doubts, as well as learning to face the harsh reality of treating those who cannot be healed." "Heinzl's year in Cambodia is a vehicle for self-discovery too. The author begins to shed his idealism for a new and deeper understanding of himself and humanity in an uncertain time and place, where the powerful beauty of the tropics and the sometimes humorous and often poignant moments clash with the dehumanizing events engendered by war."--BOOK JACKET." ;
