Marcel Drlík - A DOCTOR FROM PARGUE AT THE HEART OF AFRICA - Ed. EMI

Rome (Fides Service) - Marcel, a young doctor in Prague was 28 when he met Father Anastasius and learned that the Central African Republic was in dire need of medical doctors. After a six month course in tropical medicine in Lyons, in January 2000 Dr Marcel went to work in a hospital in Bozoum where he stayed for a year. This diary reveals an enthusiastic doctor and convinced Christian. He is close to the people and wins their admiration because he always finds a way to treat any kind of illness or, even better, to prevent it. The reader, particularly young medical doctors or students dreaming of voluntary service in the south of the world, will find in this book, convincing motivations, presented in a captivating way. After his experience in Africa Dr Marcel returned several times to the Central African Republic and is presently arranging for a programme of collaboration between Carolina University in Prague and the University of Bangui. The book, written in Czech language is available in seven languages. (S.L.) (Agenzia Fides 17/12/2004 - Righe 12; Parole 176).
