He was 73 years old and spent his life making the world a better place.
Our beloved Gino died this morning.
Two of EMERGENCY’s healthcare facilities in Afghanistan have been hit by crossfire in the last 24 hours.
Fighting has been ongoing for days now in Lashkar-Gah, southern Afghanistan. It is also near our hospital.
"We are receiving wounded patients. We ask all parties to respect this facility and ensure it is not put in danger. HOSPITALS ARE NOT A TARGET!"
Nurses, doctors, logisticians, technicians, guards, cleaners... our local colleagues in Lashkar-Gah, Afghanistan.
The prints are available at special, one-off prices for six weeks only.
There was heavy shelling, they used machine guns, and shots were fired from helicopters - it was loud.
The Taliban are now advancing towards Lashkar-Gah - the capital of Helmand province. Fighting is now worsening inside the city centre.
We heard bombing from the hospital throughout the night and the morning, plus small arms fire, machine guns, snipers and artillery.
