About this title


As a medical student in Victorian London's poverty-stricken East End. Wilfred Grenfell was shocked by the suffering and exploitation he witnessed. His sense of adventure and a desire to use his medical training to alleviate some of this suffering led him to join the Deep Sea Mission, a Christian organization dedicated to the service of fishermen and their families. In 1892, Grenfell set sail for Labrador, and devoted the rest of his life to the Labrador Mission. His achievements there, bringing medical facilities, education and improved social rights to the isolated fishing communities along that rugged coast, testify to his selfless devotion and determination. Grenfell himself, however, did not see his life of adventure and service as exceptional or heroic. I went because I wanted to go" was his constant repudiation of talk of his "personal sacrifice."
