In 1953, Howard Harper sailed with his friend, Colin Blair, from New Zealand to Pakistan. Shortly after that, with little money in his pocket and no confirmed place in medical school, Howard boarded a plane to London to commence medical studies.

After qualifying as a doctor and marrying Monika, Howard made his way back to Pakistan, overland with a caravan in tow. His medical skills opened the door to service in Afghanistan. In the mid 1960s Howard and his young family moved to Kabul to pioneer a medical program involving work with the blind and relief aid.

This story is told by Howard’s daughter, Faith, in From Kabul with Love. Using letters sent between Howard and his father, Stan, she has pieced together an authentic account of how an ordinary New Zealander accomplished extraordinary things.

Personal and moving, From Kabul with Love is a unique insight into the life of one of New Zealand’s unsung heroes.
