When we last spoke to Guatemala City firefighter/paramedic/heart surgeon Dr. Jorge Chiu, he was riding off into the sunset in a "new" ambulance. The sorely needed vehicle was made possible by the many people who donated money to a fundraiser that was launched and coordinated by photographer and former Talkupy guest Giles Clark.
Sadly, that was not to be the beginning of a happy ending. The ambulance has been out of commission months due to an accident in early December. Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Jorge to the show on Sunday Feb. 1 at 7 pm ET to tell us what happened, how people can help get him back on the road saving lives, and why it's so important to him and the people he serves.
For more information on Jorge go to his Facebook page and check out an excellent short film that Giles shot about Jorge and his fellow "bomberos" for Vice magazine last year. To donate to help repair the ambulance, please go to Paypal and send the donation to firstname.lastname@example.org
