Kamal and his wife Zahra are not strangers to pain and suffering, or to deprivation and poverty – they are dreamers willing to take risks in pursuit of a better life for their family.
They have set their sights on Australia, the lucky country and the most sought after destination for anyone seeking health, wealth and happiness. However, after disembarking at Station Pier, their enthusiasm along with their aspirations and dreams vanish into thin air.
Their dream of a happier life becomes a nightmare, haunting them as they come face-to-face with tragedy, despair, loneliness and death. New

Nurse and Patient Language Helper
Hand Picked Diaries
ISBN: 9780980522280
Hand Picked Diaries  2011 
 Hard Cover The Nurse Language Helper is an innovative new product brought to you by the people behind the Nurse Diary series. This comprehensive tool has been compiled specifically for bedside care in order to break potential language barriers between carer and patient. With 50 languages (chosen accordingly to the most common migrant languages), the Nurse Language Helper includes translations in paired sentences so the carer and patient can point to the related phrase in order to understand each other.

These sentences and phrases have been chosen specifically after conducting surveys with over 100 nurses and carers over a 5 year period as part of their Nurse Diary contents. Translated by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters, each language includes 4 pages of translations such as common questions, instructions and answers about pain, sleep, food, drink and medication. It also includes support materials in regards to recognizing language, notes in regards to cultural sensitivity and pictograms to further help communication. New/New
