Healing Wounds is a photography exhibition telling the real life stories of people from the middle east who have suffered horrific injuries from war.
A collaboration between Doctors Without Borders (MSF), with Alliance Francaise and the French Business Council in Dubai, UAE it specifically features stories of patients treated at the MSF Reconstructive Surgery Hospital in Jordan.
In 2017, award-winning Italian photographer and journalist Alessio Mamo along with journalist Marta Bellingreri, a fluent Arabic speaker, spent time at the hospital building relationships with the patients of the reconstructive surgery programme (RSP).
RSP was established to treat people injured in war and unrest. Alessio and Marta recorded the stories of some patients and photographed them.
