AT-KABUL: Lee Hilling, the author of “A Place of Miracles”, one of the top ten best-selling, self-publishing books, formally launched his book in here at the Government Media and Information Center (GMIC).
According to a press release issued here by French Medical Institute for Children (FMIC) the launch of book was attended by Minister of Economy, Abdul Sattar Murad, Afghan and French governments’ officials, Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), La Chaine de l’Espoir, France, representatives of international and civil society organizations, writers and media-persons.
“A Place of Miracles” highlights one of Afghanistan’s most remarkable reconstruction success stories involving unique partnership–two international development agencies–the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) and La Chaine de l’Espoir, and two governments–the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and France. This strategic collaboration which evolved into French Medical Institute for Children has enabled children’s lives to be saved that might have otherwise been lost.
“Uplifting rendition of what people and organizations can do. Humanity at its best,” is a review from a reader.
About the Author: Lee Hilling, a native of Ohio, has been Chairman of FMIC’s governing body since 2006 and has travelled to Afghanistan nearly sixty times.
