As I approach my sixth year as a Board Member of Concern America, I’m reminded of all the people around the world who don’t have access to health care, clean water and economic opportunities. During this pandemic, the need is even greater but our field staff have continued to provide the support and care needed to keep communities safe in Guatemala, Columbia and Mexico. In 2015 I had the privilege of visiting Guatemala where I witnessed first hand how Concern America trains communities to be health care providers, build water systems and form income generating cooperatives. What makes Concern America unique is that, instead of sending doctors to cure those in need or engineers to build water systems, Concern America trains community members to provide these services for themselves.
This year, Concern America has changed its annual Walk Out of Poverty to be a virtual one. On March 27, 2021 I will be walking with a goal to raise $4,000 in San Diego. In prior years, friends, family and colleagues have been very generous to support our ongoing work and for that I’m truly grateful! If you are able to donate to this cause, any donation would be greatly appreciated. Please join me so that Together we can Walk for people to transform need into self-sufficiency.
Join me on March 27th, virtually, so that, even from our distinct homes and communities, we are connected together by our Global Hearts.
About Concern America:
