FLOATING DOCTORS

Day 3: The Road to El Sabana

Twenty plus volunteers took a 4 day journey into the villages of La Sabana, home to Panamas indigenous Ngobe tribe. We brought in medical supplies and a mobile healthcare unit for the week, in addition to clean water filtration systems and solar powered lights. An hour long boat ride, two hour long bus trip, followed by a 4 hour trek into the mountains, delivered us into this special land. Below are images from the hike and what it took for us to get there.

Day 2: The Asilo

The crew at Floating Doctors is doing some great work with the local nursing home in Bocas del Toro. I followed along with them for the afternoon, to meet some of the tenants, listen to heartwarming stories, and learn how they make an impact with their visits and follow ups. I could have taken portraits for days in this special place.

FLOATING DOCTORS

Day 1: Valle Escondido

Floating Doctors is a non profit that my dear friends from Topanga have started, to deliver healthcare to those who otherwise have no access to it. Their mission is to reduce the present and future burden of disease in the developing world, and to promote improvements in healthcare delivery worldwide.
What they are doing is incredible, and what they need is so simple. I joined forces with them for the past week and documented their efforts, travels, and the beautiful smiles that they left in their wake. Below are some images from our first day in Valle Escondido, performing ultra sounds on patients and delivering medications to a remote island in Bocas del Toro. www.floatingdoctors.com

LOTUS LAND

I spent the weekend in Montecito, Ca visiting good friends and attending a fundraiser birthday soirée at the Lotus Land gardens. I hadn’t been back to the magical place since college, and it’s as enchanting as I remembered it…

BIG SUR

 I headed up the coast with some of my closest friends this past week, to Big Sur, for a community fundraiser at the Henry Miller Library. Wish I had the words to describe how special the journey was…
