The Hard Places - a video about Dr Tom

I was moved to support a video project - described as 'A film that tells the true story of Medal of Freedom recipient Dr. Tom Little and asks big questions about the future of Afghanistan'  It is being made by Lukas and Salome Augustine.
You can find out more on the Kickstarter website. Dr Tom ran the NOOR ophthalmic programme in Afghanistan, and was involved in helping thousands of Afghans recover their sight. He was leading the team that was killed on their way back form a medical trip in Nuristan in August 2010. I thought it looked excellent 


They produced another award winning vimeo called Afghanistan: Touchdown in flight which is well worth watching. I like the fact that it portrays the gentle side of Afghanistan, a country and people I have come to love.
