Mika, carolina strong
sept 29, 2018

mika reflects on her personal loss. “you don’t know what it’s really like until it happens to you. it’s bad, not sure where to go from here.” sidewalks and lawns are still covered with debris and trash, the small communities are pulling together to rebuild, volunteers are donating time and money, but what happens when the next hurricane comes through? #hurricaneflorence #newbernnc #blacklivesmatter #carolinastrong

Micah, 4, carolina strong
sept 29, 2018

i went to visit my sister, father and friends in eastern carolina where two weeks ago hurricane florence pummeled the carolinas. a phrase i heard over and over was “we’re carolina strong.” currently, many families are forced to live in unsanitary and unsafe conditions. micah and his family are back at home now, they’ve thrown out all their belongings but feel relatively lucky in comparison to their neighbors. micah is out of school and will be for some time as his school is unsafe due to black mold. as i reflect on the meaning of “carolina strong,” i can’t but help close my eyes and truly hope that this community finds their strength, where not far from micah’s house, my grandfather at the age of 80, got married the second time, and life seemed easy, and each day passed with calm seas and sunny skies. #blacklivesmatter #newbern #northcarolina #hurricaneflorence #thislifetoday #disaster #relief

Cutting, 2018

a woman that once performed female genital mutilation (fgm) holds the tool that she used to perform the fgm with in west pokot, kenya. since kenya banned the practice in 2011, fgm is now increasingly conducted underground, secretly in homes or in private clinics away from public view.

Celina nanjala at her home in west pokot, march 1, 2018. celina is a saving mothers client. she arrived at the keringet community health center for antenatal care where she consented to participate in the preterm birth study. she was evaluated and was diagnosed as preterm positive. she was injected with steroids to enhance fetal lung development and also given daily prenatal vitamins. she stayed at the maternity waiting home (mwh) adjacent to kapenguria hospital where she was closely monitored. as predicted, she delivered preterm twin girls and was later discharged with her two healthy daughters. sadly, one of her babies died a few months later from pneumonia.

Meet iz, 2018
iz was the smaller of faith’s twins, delivered by saving mothers, and despite having a low apgar score hours after birth she was kicking through the blankets and making herself heard.
