EMERGENCY founder Dr. Gino Strada has been included in the Yahoo! News article “Modern Day Heroes” for his work promoting peace and universal access to free-of-charge, high quality healthcare. Dr. Strada has performed over 30,000 surgeries all over the world in areas burdened by conflict and poverty. On the subject of what keeps him motivated to continue serving he says, “When you operate on a child and you see him walking again…or you operate on small children who come in with terminal conditions and you see them running in the garden a month later. That will give you the strength and the energy to work again.”
