Banyak, an Independent Documentary film company based in the UK, picked up on my image from the MSF Hospital for Reconstructive Surgery in Amman to use as their opening shot ofr their documentary on the facility.  This from my opening paragraph on the MSF Hopsital wriiten for a Readers Digest Feature; 'Sitting peacefully on a hillside, the Médecins Sans Frontières' (Doctors Without Borders) Specialized Hospital for Reconstructive Surgery looks down on Marka, the quiet North Eastern district of Amman, capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. First established as a surgical project within a wing of the Jordanian Red Crescent to care for war victims from Iraq in 2006, it has broadened its mandate to receive patients from the Gaza Strip, Yemen and most notably Syria. On 8th September 2015 it opened, at the new premise of the Al Mowasah Hospital in Tirmizi Street, a fully-fledged medical facility devoted solely to reconstructive surgery, physiotherapy and psychological support for victims of war. The MSF Hospital in Amman is unique in offering a comprehensive care package free for its patients. It is the societies biggest single annual financial commitment with an expense of approximately £7.5 million per year and a departure from its classical solely disaster response role towards one that offers "rebuilding lifes".
"At this hospital we start again. We give them a second chance", says Jean-Paul Tohme, Lebanese born French national and project coordinator for the MSF Hospital for Reconstructive Surgery.
