Images of their plight fill our newspapers and TV screens and the world feels horrified and helpless. But what is daily life like in Darfur for those who are trying to do something, however small, to help?" "Lisa arrives in Sudan with a wealth of nursing experience and a determination to make a difference. Her nine-month stay will prove to be the most heartbreakingly difficult period of her working life. Her faith in humanity is tested again and again as she witnesses the horrors of this brutal war, but in the midst of an unfolding nightmare there are moments of joy and relief. When Lisa helps a woman give birth or gives water to a baby who would otherwise die of dehydration she remembers why she came. And when she sees the dignity and determination of the people of Darfur she knows there is hope."--BOOK JACKET." ;
