If you have ever donated money to international aid and wondered what it takes to deliver the aid on the ground then this is the book for you. The dangers and high risk that sometimes accompany the humanitarian aid workers in conflict and disaster zones. Follow one man's journey through some of the most dangerous landscapes helping aid organisations to remain safe while delivering vital aid in war, post conflict and disaster zones throughout his 15-year journey. The dangers to aid workers has never before been so acute; the rise of violent extremist groups has shown a direct and targeted threat to those who work in International Aid Delivery. Executions, Kidnap and torture are all real threats, the risk of being targeted and taken are real, yet the aid workers still volunteer to travel to far-flung locations to deliver life-saving aid to communities and to people they have never met and know very little about. Follow the emotions of one man, understand his mistakes and his personal humanity, read the terrifying detail of several close calls on his personal safety and the lengths he went through to ensure aid was delivered. Hear the relived accounts of emergency evacuations, often under fire and the heartbreak of losing one of your own with the dangers involved when recovering the bodies of co-workers. All based on true events. Forget the stories of those who stereo-type aid workers as tree-huggers and do-gooders, while the work they do is for good, they are people who put themselves in harm's way to help others, they face risks that can end their lives, all with the motivation to help those in dire need of support and to deliver life-saving aid, often delivering the aid bought with your donation.
