  • 『Providence Was with Us: How a Japanese Doctor Turned the Afghan Desert Green』
    Written by Nakamura Tetsu 、Translated by Carl Freire (Japan Publishing Industry Foundation for Culture, 2020)

    This is the English translation of ‘天、共に在り Ten, Tomo ni Ari’ which was selected and translated for the Japan Library, an international public relations project of the Cabinet Office in 2020. This is a book that brings the words of Dr. Nakamura to people around the world.
    Starting in 1984 and continuing until his untimely passing in 2019, Dr. Nakamura Tetsu carried out relief work in Pakistan and Afghanistan both as a physician and as a humanitarian trying to improve living conditions for the people he met. With nature and the bonds of fate that link humans together setting the tone, this unique memoir recounts the travails and triumphs of Nakamura’s three and half decades in those two countries. How did this Japanese doctor who traveled to the region to provide medical care end up digging more than 1,600 wells and building a 25.5 kilometer-long canal? In a foreign land struck by civil war, bombings, and drought, miracles could still happen.
