Dr. Tom Catena, as close to a saint, needs your help to save countless lives.
For residents living in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan running for their lives as planes drop bombs on them is part of daily life.
Ravaged by civil war for decades, this is one of the world’s most isolated and dangerous countries. Its president continues to be wanted for war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity.
And, as the death toll mounts, the injured and sick have only one place to go: Mother of Mercy Hospital. It’s the only hospital in the entire region and it has only one doctor: Tom Catena.
Ten years ago, Catena, who is from upstate New York, left his friends and family and moved to Africa. He first trained in Kenya, before landing in the Nuba Mountains.
Tom Catena is the only physician, gynecologist, surgeon and much more to nearly one million people of the Nuba mountains.
Catena has said multiple times that he cannot leave, because if he did so it would imply that his life is more important that those he serves. Catena states, “The lives of people here matter as much as anywhere in the world, every bodies life is valuable and we can't lose sight of that or else we lose our humanity".
