Encounters on the Front Line; Cambodia: A Memoir
In 1980 Elaine Harvey worked for the International Red Cross in the Cambodian refugee camps immediately after the fall of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime. Nearly three decades later Elaine returns. She meets the people on the front lines – the human rights activists, the caregivers, and those who needed care, inspiring her to explore the challenges of service.
“Powerful and poignant, intimate and insightful.”
Bill Herod, Human Rights worker, Cambodia
