An exhibition of images by the award-winning Italian photographer and journalist Alessio Mamo in 2017, highlighting the stories of patients treated at the Médecins Sans Frontières Reconstructive Surgery Hospital in Amman; the hospital was set up in 2006 in response to the severe injuries seen by MSF during the Iraq war.
