Summary
This is the memoir of an extraordinary Australian Nurse. Recently awarded the Florence Nightingale medal by the International Committee of the Red Cross for exceptional courage and devotion to victims of armed conflict and natural disasters, Amanda is a young Australian making big waves in the international aid world. Amanda started her career nursing in remote Aboriginal communities but later shifted her focus to public and emergency health. Working with the Australian Red Cross she currently lives in Geneva but works wherever a health epidemic explodes. Amanda has been on the ground after typhoons and tsunamis, amid famine and war in places as diverse as South Sudan, Banda Aceh and dealing with the horror of Ebola at the forefront of the Red Cross's response in West Africa. Her memoir is told with humour, empathy and a vivid eye for detail
