No Tears Left: Biafra to Bosnia

Colbert, Dom
No Tears Left provides a thought-provoking, insightful and moving account of one doctor’s experience in providing voluntary medical care in some of the world’s poorest and most troubled regions for over fifty years. Dr Colbert’s book of selected memoirs is a personal account of his involvement in natural disasters, famines and wars in Africa and the Far East. He talks of the misery and despair of countless people caught up in such events and of the response of the West. He criticises things he feels strongly about and questions the efficacy of many aid projects. He unravels the complicated historical background to events in a manner that whets the reader’s appetite to probe deeper and brings us on a journey from the searing summer heat of Ethiopia to deep winter in Kosovo. You will visit the famine in Biafra, the genocide in Rwanda and the refugee camps in Ethiopia, Montenegro and Burundi. You will learn about witch doctors and even be moved by the faith of a young doctor facing the derision of all around him. This is a story that could not be made up. No Tears Left will appeal to all of those with an interest in world events, aid activity and global humanity.
