A new fantastic point of view Syria: what is a doctor now? by Nat Thurtle


Nat has worked for Médecins Sans Frontières in Al Ruwayshed, Jordan. Stuck on the Jordanian side of the border she couldn’t access the patients stranded in Syria in an area called the Berm. She has told the fictional story of Ibrahim, a Syrian child wandering in this place she can’t access and now asks an existential question – what is a doctor in this place that does not even exist?
