A picture is worth a thousand words
Our teams continued to provide lifesaving and life-changing medical care in over 70 countries around the world in 2018.
Photojournalists and staff photographers were there beside them – bearing witness to and capturing the work of our dedicated teams, and the stories of the individuals and communities they assist.
Whether caught in or fleeing conflict and violence, affected by disease or epidemics, or hit by natural disasters, our patients each have their own unique story to tell. Stories of suffering and vulnerability, bravery and resilience. These pictures of the year (taken between November 2017 and December 2018) showcase a select few.
