Another Day in Paradise is an anthology of first-person stories by international aid workers. Written by active aid workers and spanning the hot spots of the globe from Afghanistan to Cambodia, Rwanda to Vietnam and Ecuador to Bosnia, these stories tell it like it really is on the ground. Covering natural disaster, war and all-too-fragile peace, these stories open an uncensored window onto the lives of aid workers and the triumphs and tragedies of the people they are trying to help.
