Meet Katrina Moore. Katrina is a graduate student at NYU’s food studies program, and spent 5 weeks in Ghana recently that changed her life. She’s now started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a documentary about Shekhinah Clinic, which offers free healthcare and meals to the mentally ill and handicapped of Tamale, Ghana. The film will center around the charismatic Dr. David Abdulai. After studying and practicing medicine in the United Kingdom and Austria, Dr. Abdulai returned to his hometown of Tamale with his wife, Doris, to start Shekhinah Clinic, a free clinic for anyone who cannot afford medical care. Together, David and Doris Abdulai, along with a team of volunteers, provide healthcare and daily meals to over 200 of the city’s destitute. Listen to this special recording as host Leah Eden chats with Katrina about how the idea for the film came about and what her experiences were like while in Ghana. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
“The thing about making a documentary is you don’t know what’s going to happen until you get there! That’s part of the fun and excitement – we know the story and what they do but we have no idea how they will react to being filmed.” [04:00]
