Sally's work as a humanitarian has been well-documented, especially during the war in Bosnia where she crossed the front lines in an ambulance to rescue injured children from besieged areas. Amidst the carnage and the chaos, she managed to negotiate ceasefires in areas where others had failed and her evacuation missions saved hundreds of children. http://www.sallybecker.co.uk
