Delve into the first-hand account of a life dedicated to making a difference through performing humanitarian work. At 7 years of age, after being emotionally moved by a documentary depicting the suffering of humans caused by humans in conflict, Gerard Robertson immediately knew that somehow he would be a part of easing the pain that he witnessed. The path that best suited his ideals was to volunteer with the Red Cross in his homeland of New Zealand in 1995. This eventually led to the opportunity to work for the International Committee of the Red Cross. Reluctant to call himself a hero, he has nonetheless put his own life on the line traveling to the most dangerous and terrible places on this planet in an effort to make a difference. Discover the potential risks from exposure to diseases and the perilous conditions that are commonplace, and yet are not enough to deter the most loyal workers. About the Author: Gerard Robertson was born and raised in a small town in New Zealand. He met his wife while they were both working in Liberia in 2004. After a one year sabbatical, the two are looking forward to a one year mission in Kyrgyzstan. He is the father of an eighteen year old daughter.
