The Film That Became a Movement
The Heart of Nuba, the story of American doctor Tom Catena selflessly serving the needs of a forgotten people, has inspired a movement to save lives.
It has raised for than $2 million in donations, 100% of which have gone to medical supplies, staff training and other critical needs of “Dr. Tom’s” hospital, the Mother of Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan.
