A Life Half Lived by Andrew MacLeod, 1st Ed, Red Cross Aid Worker, United Nations

$10.99

As a law student, Andrew MacLeod heard a key speaker talk about "a moral obligation to use our skills to better the lives of others". It changed his life's direction. Andrew chose to work in aid, first as a Red Cross delegate in the former Yugoslavia, then in Rwanda and later the United Nations where he was appointed Chief of Operations in the international response to the 2005 Kashmir earthquake in Pakistan. Part autobiography and part controversial dialogue, A Life Half Lived is the account of Andrew's life, so far, on the ground in the world's disaster and emergency zones.
