GREAT GINO

Gino Strada is an Italian war surgeon and founder of the Italian NGO Emergency.
Emergency operates in thirteen war-torn countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Cambodia, Rwanda.
Emergency claims that it helps civilian victims of war without being hindered by bureaucracy.
In 1996, Emergency opened its first hospital in Iraqi Kurdistan. Today, Emergency operates eight hospitals in areas of conflict, including a surgical hospital in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and a hospital in Lashkar-Gah, Afghanistan. Fifty four “First Aid Posts-Health Care Centers”, located in heavily mined areas or close to the front lines, are connected to the Emergency hospitals' network.
Gino Strada is the prize winning author of Green Parrots, A War Surgeon’s Diary and Buskashi, A Journey Inside War,. His work was the subject of an award winning documentary “Jung in the Land of the Mujaheedin” and a PBS Point of View, “Afghanistan 1380”.

“I am not a pacifist. I'm against war.”
