Verdict: Wonderful Look at the Good in the World
Story: Modern Day Miracles starts as we learn about CURE, a charity that has doctors mostly in Africa as well as the Philippines who are helping sick children get the surgery they require after suffering injuries that never healed medically.
In this film we follow three stories, one in Dominican Republic, one in Niger and one in the Philippines, we get to see how the team operate with the communicating and rehab process which will be long. They use the power of belief in God to help remain positive through the problems they are suffering from.
Thoughts on Modern Day Miracles
Final Thoughts – We need to look at this documentary in two different directions, first we should praise the work the charity workers are doing for the children who don’t get the medical support in the small villages they are living in, this documentary shows how obstacles including language barriers and home grown beliefs about people of different races. We see how committed the team is to make this happen. On the other side of the documentary comes the religious side of CURE, where the people working use their belief in God to bring a spiritual happiness to the patients to make their time at the medical centres more comfortable. While I personally have no belief in any form of religion, seeing how giving the patients extra hope and smiles using it, shows how important it can be for somebody who is suffering. This is a documentary that should be watched by anyone that wants to see the good being done in the world and one that gives you hope about the people in it.
Overall: Documentary that gives us all hope.
