The book, “Barge for Bangladesh”, rightfully carries the message on how he united a band of people across the globe under the philosophy of “Sailing for Solidarity”.

The book is divided into 13 chapters, each detailing the process from selecting a canal barge to watching it transform into a floating hospital. Armed with only two men on board (including himself) on January 1994, his sole intention was to deliver the vessel to Bangladesh and convert it into a floating hospital, which was renamed as “Friendship”, and subsequently as “Lifebuoy-Friendship Hospital”, which has proven to be a unique and strong support for the most underprivileged populations of Bangladesh. Till now, more than a million lives have benefited from her medical support.


In his notes as the book’s publisher, Enayetullah Khan, chairman of Cosmos Books, mentioned that Yves’ story narrates as “a part-adventure, part-memoir and underlying it all, a clarion call for humanity”. When he had heard that the book, originally written in French, was being considered for an English edition. So there was little hesitation to seek to publish the book which was a recipient of the 2015 Eric Tabarly Award for Best Sea Book of the Year.
