I was invited to be a member of the Board of Directors in order to bring perspective as I had no previous knowledge of the work of OOH.
What a dedicated, determined and professional organization Jen Trubenbach manages and leads! She is the consummate professional with the tenacity of a saint!
My trip with them to Zimbabwe was an extraordinary experience as I watched hope and healing come to so many. The doctors, nurses and other volunteers are skilled and sensitive to the realities their patients have and will face.
Operation of Hope.org is a model of excellence in utilizing their funding in the most pragmatic ways in order to do their work for as many as possible!
