War Doctor Heroes: Meet Dr Aisha

War Doctor Heroes features the stories of our global family of surgeons. Their devotion to saving lives inspires us to keep moving forward. Conflict doesn’t stop, neither do we.

In this feature, we’re proud to introduce Dr Aisha from Libya.  Dr Aisha travelled 1,000 miles to attend our HEST course in Misrata, Libya.  She is part of a small team of surgeons in Sabha, south west Libya.  She is used to fighting to keep patients alive whilst shrapnel and bullets tear through her hospital building.  “A single shot to an oxygen tube could have destroyed the whole theatre, where we were operating but we couldn’t stop – we felt we were making a difference”.  After our course, Aisha said: “Your hands can do the work but you need someone to guide you”.
