Dr. Swee Chai Ang (Author)

This is the story of Dr Ang Swee Chai, a Penang-born orthopaedic surgeon, and her flight to war-torn Lebanon in 1982 to treat the wounded and dying. It started as a humanitarian mission. Dr. Ang wanted to use her skills to treat wounded civilians in wartorn Beiruit: she volunteered and almost by chance found herself working in Sabra, a Palestinian refugee camp. Within weeks of her arrival, Israel invaded West Beirut and the people of Sabra and Shatila fell victim to the appalling 1982 massacre. Since those dark days, Dr. Ang has become a familiar figure in West Beirut. Working with Palestinian doctors and medical staff, she and other volunteers have treated the sick, the wounded, and the dying without fear or favour. From Beirut to Jerusalem is the story and the testimony of a remarkable doctor and woman.
