Editor and writer of "A Thousand Words: Photos From the Field" Stacy Twilley says, "I first became aware of the extraordinary work International Medical Corps was doing after the tsunami in Indonesia. I started volunteering with International Medical Corps and that's when I discovered their archive of more than 10,000 photographs. The images were extraordinary. Some were taken by famous photographers and others by aid workers in the midst of crisis. I realized that I had stumbled onto an unprecedented account of history".

Each photograph in this book is a profound reminder of the incredible journey of International Medical Corps, and the exceptional efforts of our colleagues who have cared for hundreds of millions of people in these fragile, often dangerous environments".
