A conversation with Lisa Blaker, author of Heart of Darfur.

Malawi, Dardur, Tamil-occupied Sri-Lanka Lisa Blaker’s resume reads like a travel journal from hell, but it is a life she can’t get enough of. The nine months Lisa spent there were amongst the toughest in her life, as she struggled to make a difference in the humanitarian disaster that is Darfur.
Lisa describes treating machette wounds, babies dying of chronic dehydration, girls giving birth at the age of 13 and older people too traumatised to carry on living.

Join us as Lisa shares her experiences travelling through Darfur as a nurse with Medecins Sans Frontieres, the medical organisation that sends health workers to the most desparate places in the world.
