Description :
Citing 1996-7, 2007-8, and 2011-12 as particularly difficult times. During fighting in his village last July, he described to us how one patient, a wounded fighter, died because they could not transport him through the frontlines to the nearest hospital. He stayed onsite to help the wounded who managed to make it to the health centre, while intense fighting was going on in the village, some shots hitting and damaging the building.
