Day 3 has been amazing. Seeing the life changing results the team was able to achieve was mind blowing. See the smiles and joy on the patient and parents faces was unlike anything I’ve seen before in my 26 years as a photographer. Being part of the team and capturing these stories is very rewarding. I am really in awe of the skills of the surgical, physiotherapy, and speech therapy teams. Any difference I can make by sharing these stories will lead to some massive changes for those patients, their families, and their communities. Every $1000 that I can help raise will give a child a life changing procedure.
After an amazing day I was really blown away to see and meet some amazing people. There is something humbling about meeting people who work as hard and are as dedicated as the staff of the Commonwealth War Memorial Hospital. The difference they make to the lives of Fijians is fantastic. Dr. Samesa Matanicake Junior, is one of those rare people who give more than most. His efforts have made a huge difference to his patients but also for the hospital, Suva and Fiji.
The year is coming to a close, and it's been a fun and exciting one, with one video for DairyNZ going viral with over 7 million views, it's been a bit mind blowing.
Creating an exciting documentary and some cool projects coming up for 2019 will make it a blinder of a year! Keep an eye out here for updates as things start kicking off.
Happy New Year to you all, and best wishes for 2019!
