In the Wars: A Story of Conflict, Survival and Saving Lives

In the Wars: A Story of Conflict, Survival and Saving Lives

Born in war-torn Afghanistan, Waheed Arian’s earliest memories are of bombs. Fleeing the conflict with his family, he spent much of his childhood in refugee camps in Pakistan, living sometimes ten to a room without basic sanitation or access to education. But how does a boy with nothing hope to become a doctor? Dr Arian has written an extraordinary memoir of a boy who recognized the power of education and dreamed about helping others and created a tale of courage, ambition and unwavering resilience.
