“The best part with working with spina bifida kids… first of all, what I can say? It is taxing getting a mother, the mother is all ready depressed, has never seen such a condition before, there she comes with the baby with little hopes, so talking to them and gaining their trust is really something you can be proud of, because at the beginning they have no hope these children are going to live. After you have explained to them, they come to know these children are able to live. Get them drawing closer to you for more information, for interaction, for those challenges they don’t understand, and in most cases I feel proud when they call me.”
About the photographer
Christopher Mullen Aloha, I’m Christopher, the CURE Storyteller at CURE Uganda. My favorite thing in the world to do is make photographs, and I get to do that in a wonderful environment. On a normal day, I get to document surgeons, doctors, and nurses saving lives and families being prayed for and comforted by every department in the hospital. Prior to working for CURE, I spent the last two years working as a freelance photojournalist in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
