Photographs by John Loomis April 27, In a shantytown perched in the hilly outskirts of Lima, Peru, people were dying. When food ran short, they formed ad hoc collectives to stave off starvation. A Catholic priest ministering to a parish in the slum went looking for help, and he found it in Jim Yong Kim, an idealistic Korean-American physician and anthropologist.
The priest had been involved with the group in Boston, its home base, before serving in Peru, and he asked Kim to help him set up a clinic to aid his flock.
No sooner had Kim arrived in Lima, however, than the priest contracted a drug-resistant form of tuberculosis and died. Kim was devastated, and he thought he knew what to blame: But Kim saw calamitous trickle-down effects, including the tuberculosis epidemic that had claimed his friend and threatened to spread through the parish.

The former bank foe now stands accused of being an invasive agent, inflicting his own form of shock therapy on his staff. Kim, however, sees no sharp distinction: Kim likes to say that as a doctor with experience treating the poor, his humanitarian outlook is his strongest qualification for his job — an opinion that probably vexes critics who point out that he knew little about lending before arriving at the bank.
You have to have kind of done that before. Following him — a lithe, balding year-old surrounded by a deferential, suited entourage — you can easily imagine him in a white coat as a physician making his rounds.
At the March conference, a technology summit sponsored by the Department of Energy, he strode briskly past booths where inventors were shilling ideas. When a couple of entrepreneurs stopped Kim to pitch him a clean-coal project, he brushed them off.The story of God creating Adam is a popular topic in this story and is also believed that Shelly had intended for “Frankenstein” to be an allegory for the story of creation.
