We’re helping to make it easier to eat fruits and vegetables in the Navajo Nation. One of the first steps: figuring out where most people live. http://buff.ly/1dpEcct

To everyone who has contributed to the #WeHeal project: THANK YOU. The poems, videos, and photos submitted are so inspiring.

As a thank you, we're giving each contributor whose story we feature a "HEAL" T-shirt like the one Aminata Kargbo is wearing. She's an Ebola survivor who works with us in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Haiti's University Hospital -- now open for two years -- has become the nation’s largest public hospital. Staff provide care to 725 patients on an average weekday, and at least 420 medical professionals—doctors, residents, and nurses—have received more than 10,600 hours of training. Together we're bringing care to the most vulnerable people and building a system that will be even better for the next generation.

Dr. Fabrice Julcéus (on the left) and Dr. Ronald St. Jean are among the first to graduate from our family medicine residency program in St. Marc, #Haiti. Dr. Julcéus chose family medicine because “You don’t see only a part of the person, you see the whole person—and not only their body. You’re thinking about the psychological and social problems. I love this approach.”

Every day, we meet women—from Haiti, to Rwanda, to Navajo Nation—who stop at nothing to keep their kids, and themselves, healthy and well. These mothers do everything in their power to ensure their children have the love, protection, and nourishment they need to thrive. They deserve, but can't access, the best health care modern science has to offer.

This #MothersDay, you can help these women and their families while honoring a woman in your life who has helped you thrive. Make a gift here: http://buff.ly/1EJvorQ

What does it mean to heal and be healed? We asked our co-founder Dr. Paul Farmer: "To cure is the greatest privilege in medicine. To heal is a broader goal, and one that can't be reached without our patients and their families. Being with former patients, now survivors, is certainly the way they heal us, the caregivers. They remind us how lucky we are to be a part, even a small part, of what it takes to truly heal."

Healing can also happen in the space of a hug, the warmth of a smile, or the length of a story. Share your story of healing, or see what it means to others, here: http://buff.ly/1Nz1LPP

A beautiful handmade mosaic welcomes staff and patients to #Haiti's new Center of Excellence in Rehab and Education. University Hospital uses mosaics to help create dignified spaces for people to recover. They send the message "you’re not a castaway. You are just as important in society as anyone else, ” says Dr. Andree LeRoy, Zanmi Lasante’s director of rehabilitation services.
