Lady with the Lamp
Every day we read about another humanitarian crisis and see the shocking images on our screens.Whether it be Nepal, a war zone, or Sicily where hundreds of desperate migrants continually arrive, many will need medical attention.
Organisations such as the Red Cross and Medicins Sans Frontieres, are continually called upon to provide nurses and other medical staff to care for the sick and injured.
Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern day nursing and Clara Barton, the founder of the Red Cross are the names that most will recognise. But, what about all the nurses in our world that we don't know their names? They're most definitely the ones that keep the lamp burning brightly.
