Trouble Ahead:  Dangerous Mission with Desperate People

A book by WCI's Executive Director Susan Burgess-Lent

These are the stories of her fifteen solo journeys to places that, for awhile, riveted public attention because of their terrifying and elaborate violence:  Rwanda, Darfur, the slums of Kenya.

Witness, enabler and critic, the author worked just outside the corporate web of humanitarian aid. Her journals explore ‘what happens after’ a crisis – the grief, resilience, and astonishing aspirations of people struggling to recover. She reveals, through unblinking observations, the nuances of cultures and tragedies unfamiliar to those living in relative peace and prosperity. 

Out of these missions grew the author’s inspiration for Women’s Centers International, a movement to respond to the global wildfire of women’s needs.
