Photos by Art

Amidst all his camera equipment, Artur used doll "stuffings" that have been given to our patients on the Children's ward. Hurray for early Christmas presents!

We had the pleasure of two visitors last week: Dr. Laura Smelter from Christian Health Service Corps and Artur Gajda, a cinematographer from Canada. Though the focus of Artur's trip was capturing videos of Kalukembe's story and our experience there, he did take a few stills. These are just a few to share with you now. I am amazed how with an artist's eye, these pictures tell the story of our community and its beautiful people in ways our words struggle to describe. His website is found by clicking here

Thanks, Artur!
