Photo Friday -- Somber

Here Dr. Gomez is treating a baby that is malnourished and sick in a small Mam tribal village in the mountains of western Guatemala. Unfortunately, the only health care that villagers can afford (they make an average of US$2 a day) is when people like Dr. Gomez travel to these villages to provide rudimentary health care. To me, this is a somber moment and thought.
