Dr. Rafael Cruz Tirado, Utuado, Puerto Rico
Pediatrician, missionary and community doctor

“When we go to isolated communities, we reach places where sometimes the roads are in such bad shape that people can't even leave their homes. Sometimes they don't have water or electricity. We go to places with great needs to help with services, with medicine. Those people need to talk. Sometimes we are the first person they have communicated with in a long time. It's not just serving them; it's also listening to them. This goes beyond working on their physical health. Emotional health and physical health go hand in hand. You help them in a comprehensive way.”
