Theatre Wakefield presents Dispatches Without Borders on Thursday, March 22, 7:30 p.m. at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield.
February 1, 2018
Based on MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres) volunteers’ blogs, it explores the difficulties of humanitarian fieldwork from the perspective of The Patient, The Nurse, The Doctor, The Psychologist, and The Logistician.
In their own words, hear the stories of treating patients with Ebola, of dealing with snakes, machetes, and tuberculosis. Learn the challenges of creating functioning programmes with little support and few supplies. And hear, in their own words, the challenges of working with war-wounded and deeply traumatized patients.
This reading is a fundraiser, with profits to be split between MSF and the Wakefield Community Emergency Fund.
