In 2000, he began working for the International Committee of the Red Cross. His experiences around the world are described in his extraordinary book Not Funny Then, But Funny Now. If you’ve ever wondered what the life of a humanitarian worker is like, read about the rewards as well as the toll it can take on your personal life, in the words of someone who has been at the world’s hotspots when help was needed.
According to one Amazon reader: “Gerry Robertson provides a great insight into countries that are experiencing pain that we in the wealthier realms cannot envisage. I read this based on a referral and could not put it down, a true insight into what our foreign aid workers experience on a daily basis. Truly makes one appreciate the basic comforts that we enjoy in our plush lives. There is no doubting the authenticity of the author as he has been evident in our television and print media over the past decade. To bring humour into what can only be described as life altering events is a skill and softens the experience somewhat for us city dwellers. Looking forward to the next book.”
