La Merced

Cheryl Nemazie | Managua, Nicaragua

Dr. Vince Perrotta, one of the founders of La Merced, performs outpatient surgery in the Roberto Clemente Clinic in Managua, Nicaragua.

 La Merced is a Salisbury, Maryland based non-profit seeking to fill a void in the socialist medical system in Nicaragua.

A corp of doctors (plastic surgeons, dentists, GPs, and orthopedic surgeons) and support staff donate time and resources to serve those who would otherwise fall through the cracks.

Work is centered around La Mascota Children's Hospital and a local clinic. These images center on a few of the cases documented over the past three years.

  Cheryl Nemazie is a commercial and documentary photographer.

She brings her background as a graphic designer and art director for a 5-star hotel chain to NGOs as a means of providing visual tools to communicate compelling messages.

Her commercial work funds her passion for NGO work and fine-art photography. Her images have been used across the globe not just by the NGOs, but by human rights organizations, governments, and media outlets to inform and inspire community involvement in local issues.
