Dr. Alwash, an Iraqi surgeon who was once a refugee himself, visits a patient who was wounded in his arm, chest, and leg. “All our patients are newly injured in this conflict,” he says, usually by bombs or gunshots. “Our work mainly concentrates first on saving lives—surgical procedures that can save lives or save limbs.” Coming next week: “The Reach of War,” a look at the human face of the conflict in Syria.

Gloves and boots are left to dry in the treatment area in Guéckédou, Guinea. After being in the the isolation zone, clothing and boots are disinfected with chlorine. If contracted, Ebola is one of the world’s most deadly diseases. It is a highly infectious virus that can kill up to 90 percent of the people who catch it, causing terror among infected communities. Because Ebola is highly contagious, staff treating patients suffering from the disease must wear protective equipment to prevent transmission.
