Anesthesiologist, served in Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Ghana, Pakistan

The most beautiful mission I've been on was in Pakistan. We were able to go places only the shepherds could go. The most beautiful thing is to fulfill what you knew how to do. I don't know anything besides how to take care of human beings. Each experience is a collective experience of what we are capable of.

Practice is the criteria for the truth, and the only truth we have is that we give love to all the world. We are the enemy of death, and death has to hide from the Cuban health professional. Only with a big heart and love can we do this.

As long as we exist, Cuban health will be around the world.
