Twice a week at 6 p.m., 26-year-old Damaris Silva returns to the ward to play a mix of popular Latin songs, bringing joy to patients in critical care.

"As soon as I walk in the patients brighten, they seem happier; they smile and applaud," she told Reuters.

Silva's goal, she says, is to "give a little bit of love, of faith, of hope with my violin. Every time I do it, I do it from my heart."
