I have volunteered for Project Hope since the Earthquake in Nias in 2005. it was the first attempted to partner the US Navy with NGOs. It took a while for us to figure out each others role on the ship US Mercy but we soon learned what was expected and how to work well together. Since then Project Hope has responded to other disasters and remained in the country's after everyone else has left. To help educate and continue to rehab victims. This is the case inHaiti after so much cholera and traumatic amputations had occurred. recently I traveled with Project Hope to Benin and Togo, Africa. We set up Health clinics and preventive education for the people there. this was during the time of the death of Ambassador Stevens. Despite that we felt safe and secure with our Navy and Marine partners. Project Hope takes care of its volunteers and remains in the country after everyone else has left!

Project HOPE is a global health and education and humanitarian aid organization. It has programs in over 35 countries throughout the world. The organization is involved with public health programs as well as disaster relief programs. Although Project HOPE has many beneficial programs programs, one that stand out to me is its Orphans and Vulnerable children program in Namibia. In Namibia, Project HOPE helps teach young people about HIV prevention and teaches parenting skills to guardians of those who have been orphaned due to AIDS. I am a volunteer at Project HOPE in the Communications Department. I have been helping to spread the word about HOPE's great programs for the past three months.

I too struggle with giving to this org. and others like it where the CEO receives a salary that seems excessive. on one hand i know that non profits like any body else need to hire competent people to run their organizations and also need to compensate them well to keep them. I know hat they devote a lot of time work and effort on behalf of the org. and probably do a lot of traveling too. however on the other hand they are working for a charity whose goal is to.help people and the more you pay out in salary and administrative expenses is less $ for the mission of the org. also since this is a Charity should not the leaders be expected to make some sacrifices on the matter of salary and benefits vs working for a private company

I am troubled by the excessive pay to the CEO. I believe that charity money should not be used for such high pay.

The Basrah Children's Hospital opened in October 2010. Its focus is caring for children with cancer. Unfortunately, children in Southern Iraq have cancer rates 8 to 10 times higher than children in the West.

The Basrah Children's Hospital - the first new hospital built in Iraq in more than
30 years - is an example of Project HOPE's diligence to make sure the health needs of children are addressed.

Please visit the link below to view a video about the hospital. http://www.projecthope.org/where-we-work/southeast-asia-middle-east/iraq.html

Come on Project Hope - update your website with the truth about the Basra Children's Hospital in Iraq that you said that would be opened in 2006, then 2007, 2008....It still isn't opened, and you never had the integrity to admit that as a US Defense contractor, you don't want to ruffle their feathers. I encourage anyone considering working with Project Hope to understand that they are working for the US Defense Department, just as USAID did in Vietnam. You won't be considered as a neutral aid worker by anyone in the field.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

break off ties with the US military, and restore independent integrity.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they rarely stay in country for more that a week.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

arrogant and ignorant.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy liability insurance for their shoddy workmanship on the Childrens Hospital they are trying to build in Iraq.

Ways to make it better...

they had told the truth to the State Department and to Congress.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

transforming themselves into the official humanitarian arm of the Defense Department and working as civil servants.
