This was my second and longer trip to Amman, Jordan. When I first got in and looked at my GPS, I zoomed out to acknowledge how much devastation and chaos surrounds Jordan on all borders. The aftermath of attacks that leave people fighting to find some semblance of a normal life is tragic. It’s not just about how many were lost. What the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Reconstructive Surgery Programme (RSP) in Amman really highlights are the people who spend months to years recovering from devastation. Victims of wars erupting in Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Palestine come to the hospital to receive month-long and sometimes year-long rehabilitation, where the MSF staff’s aim is to help patients regain the functionality and mobility that they lost due to the raging wars surrounding them. Amputees and burn victims. Surgeries and grafts and prosthetics. Learning to walk again, talk again. Never mind the psychological impact of intense trauma. The more wars that are fought simultaneously, the less the value of the individual and their quality of life seems to matter. And it should matter. This is man-made devastation and these are innocent people.
