Dr Hany El Banna A Servant to the world’s Poorest People

This is a well researched and written piece of work with detailed description of the biographyof Dr Hany El Banna.

Suma Din’s use of suitable maps, diagrams and pictures of events brings the reader into this journey leaving an imagination of the events and places. This is Fantastic and I personally found it helpful.

The Author delved into the life of Dr Hany El-Banna a Medical Doctor by profession turned Humanitarian worker by choice. Revealing his humanitarian nature, deeds, achievements, and most importantly how he sacrificed his career to attend to the needs of the less privileged.

“Three days before the exams, news about the war in Lebanon and the massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps were in the headlines. A surge of responsibility awoke in Hany, and he felt compelled to help the victims that very weekend in September before his exams.
By co-ordinating with student friends from London, and following his heart, he
set out that weekend to raise funds, but by doing so, failed his exam the
following week” (Pg 19)

I was highly touched and motivated by his decision and felt this urgent need to serve as well.

However, the only regret I had while reading this book was not getting hold of it before Ramadhan as it is a real Iman (faith) booster.

This is no doubt an inspiration packed material, suitable for the recommended age. Also I recommend this to all social workers as a guide as it contains useful advice and skills needed in that field.
