Feeding People

by on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at 9:00 am

In the US, we usually think of hospital food as something undesirable, but in most hospitals in the developing world, the family is responsible for bringing food for the patient. If your family doesn’t bring food, you go hungry. That doesn’t happen at CURE hospitals. Patients and their guardians have meals prepared for them by our incredible kitchen staff. Many of our kids come in malnourished and need some good, healthy food to prepare their bodies for surgery. Just like the care they receive from the medical and spiritual departments, feeding patients is one more way we show love to the kids and families we serve.

Calling down the devil

Alba was so desperate for healing for her son that she was ready to call down the devil if that was what it would take to heal him.

Take a second and let that soak in. I get to talk to a lot of patients and families as CURE’s multimedia producer, but I’ve never heard someone say something like that before. I’ve also interviewed and photographed a lot of African traditional healers (what we call “witch doctors”) in my career, but honestly, for all of the theatrics they use, many are closer to herbalists than someone who is calling forth dark powers.

Germayori was born in the Dominican Republic with her left leg bowed. I was shooting pictures in the hospital last year when she was in for treatment. It was moving to see her father, this tough Dominican guy, breaking down in the ward, unsure how his daughter was doing in surgery. What follows is the story he shared with me when I caught up with him this year.

Meet Abaynesh from CURE Video on Vimeo. Abanynesh suffered from a severely crippling condition called knock knees. She lived a life of isolation, never leaving the walls of her hut.

Blood runs deep. There is an unseen connection between brothers. Even though you may not have similar interests, you still have a strong bond. But what if you not only grew up with someone with that blood connection, but you also shared something no one else you know shared: the same disability.

Haiti documentary garners attention at film festival

As CURE’s Multimedia Producer I have shot in some pretty interesting places. My passion is telling the stories of the kids CURE has healed. I enjoy every minute of working in the barrios and villages. One of the toughest shoots I ever had was when I went to Haiti a week after the earthquake. I […]

Junior in Spanish

Today after shooting some pics at the CURE Honduras hospital, Spiritual Director Aracely Castillo said that we were going to get in the car with CURE’s driver extraordinaire, Coto, and go see Junior. My response was – cool. This boy had a very dramatic before picture… very much like Isaias, so let’s go shoot his […]
