No Tears Left is a thought-provoking, insightful and moving account of one doctor’s experience in providing voluntary medical care in some of the world’s poorest and most troubled regions for over fifty years.

Dr. Dom Colbert’s book of selected memoirs is a personal account of his involvement in natural disasters, famines and wars in Africa and the Far East. He outlines the misery and despair of countless people caught up in such events and of the response of the West. He questions the efficacy of many aid projects and unravels the complicated historical background to the events he witnessed, bringing us on a journey from the searing summer heat of Ethiopia to deep winter in Kosovo. We visit the famine in Biafra, the genocide in Rwanda and the refugee camps in Ethiopia, Montenegro and Burundi.

We learn about witch doctors and are moved by the faith of a young doctor facing the derision of all around him. This is a story that could not be made up. No Tears Left will appeal to all of those with an interest in world events, aid activity and global humanity.
