NEW BOOK by Susan Burgess-Lent

Trouble Ahead: Dangerous Missions with Desperate People  

These are the stories of a woman’s fifteen solo journeys to places that, for awhile, riveted public attention because of their terrifying and elaborate violence:  Rwanda, Darfur, the slums of Kenya. Witness, enabler and critic, Susan worked just outside the corporate web of humanitarian aid. Her journals explore ‘what happens after’ a crisis – the grief, resilience, and astonishing aspirations of people struggling to recover. She reveals, through unblinking observations, the nuances of cultures and tragedies that have defined the world of humanitarian relief

Out of these missions grew the author’s inspiration for Women’s Centers International, a movement to respond to the global wildfire of women’s needs.

Trouble Ahead offers new ways to think about how we can help when it’s needed. And compassionate help is always needed … somewhere.

Available at Amazon in paperback and e-book.
