AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Vula Bevalile: Letters from a Young Doctor is a collection of vignettes written over seven years by Maithri Goonetilleke, who has been contributing his time voluntarily in Swaziland—a country devastated by extreme poverty and the HIV and AIDS epidemic.

Through the stories, the reader is taken on an incredible journey across a landscape of extreme adversity and medical and economic hardship. But it is the final, overwhelming sense of humanity that is most striking and empowering. The ultimate outcome for the reader is a profound understanding of a people with enormous resilience, pride, humility, and courage.' (Publisher's blurb)
