Maidan Shahr is a town around 50km from Kabul, on the main road from the capital to Kandahar.
“If everyone of us did our bit, the world would be a better place without us even realising it”.
Teresa Sarti Strada
Today we remember Teresa, EMERGENCY’s first President.
There’s a thread that links Teresa to all the people you see on these pages.
That thread is her commitment, hard work, attention and passion, which have made EMERGENCY what it is today. We lost her ten years ago, and we still like to remember her surrounded by people who were given the chance of a new life by EMERGENCY.
