I have reached the midway point in my campaign “The Island of Widows” but still have a big hill to climb. I need your support to reach my goal of $19,000 to fund this important project.

Every contribution gets us one step closer to finding a solution to Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown origin (CKDu) that has left 1/3 of the men (mostly cane workers) in Chichigalpa, Nicaraguan in end stage renal failure. With a death nearly everyday, something needs to be done to end this epidemic.

Workers and advocates are intimidated by the government and sugarcane companies to keep this human rights issue quiet. Using the power of photography and video, I want to create a positive change. Help me give a voice to these sugarcane workers. Their story needs to be told, and I need your help to do it.

Please join me in becoming part of the solution by donating to the campaign and spreading the word. Together we can make a difference.
