Hôpital Sacré Coeur (HSC) is the largest private hospital in the North of Haiti. Located in the town of Milot, the 120 bed hospital has provided uninterrupted service for over 25 years. This premier Haitian healthcare facility has been a beacon of hope for the people of Northern Haiti as it creates a healthier Haiti, one dignified life at a time. CRUDEM is the hospital's foundation and helps keep the hospital running. CRUDEM is an acronym for Center For Rural Development In Milot.
In 2012 Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, NJ has partnered with CRUDEM and has since been aiding in the organization and operations of the hospital. I have been blessed with the privilage of documenting what Holy Name is doing, the hospital, and people of Milot.
CRUDEM and Hôpital Sacré Coeur rely heavily on donations of money, time, and expertise. To learn more or to donate please visit www.crudem.org.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease. The motor neurons affect the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing. It is a relatively common "rare disorder": approximately 1 in 6000 babies born are affected, and about 1 in 40 people are genetic carriers.
I worked with a group of 6 people to create "A Thousand More", a compelling story about a boy and his family living with SMA. Please watch Philly's touching story and share it with your friends.
There are more homeless people today than at any previous time in U.S. history.Right now, more than 1.3 million of them are children.
They're out there alone, and they need our help.
We believe that by focusing on highlighting one cause, while asking people to do one thing for that cause, great change can occur.
In this project I was the director of production and multimedia journalist. More than 32 Pulitzer-winning photojournalists and some of the most recognized names in photojournalism have come together to put a "face" on teenage homelessness while asking you to put a "face" on activism and do
"1 thing" to help.
Please check out Do1Thing and help fight teenage homelessness.
The Heart Gallery of New Jersey, Inc. is a unique not-for-profit corporation dedicated to raising awareness about foster children available for adoption. Through the volunteer efforts of some of the country's most prestigious photographers, portraits are taken that help capture the individuality and spirit of each foster child who is eligible to be adopted. These photographs are then shared via the web and through gallery exhibits in the hope that potential families will be moved to inquire about adoption.
The role I played was the Director of Production for Pulitzer nominated Heart Gallery of NJ. Collaborating with a group of 150 photographers to make an exhibit of over 330 photographs that would travel thoughout the year was not an easy task. Countless hours were put into the cause of helping foster children find "forever families". The process was repeated 2 years following The Heart Gallery project with New Jersy's 100 foster children most difficult to place, appropriately titled "100 Waiting Children".
I am proud of the work that was done for the many children and families that were touched. Please see more at The Heart Gallery of NJ.
