Cambodian Children's Fund
September 7, 2014

My wife & I learned about CCF through the 2008 documentary film, Small Voices, & have had the privilege of sponsoring 2 children for the past year. Being health professionals with experience abroad, we were very impressed by not only the obvious passion & drive of Scott & his team, but also their careful thought in designing a multi-modal intervention to break the cycle of poverty, disease, abuse & lack of education in Cambodia.

Our visit to CCF's facilities earlier this year only confirmed first-hand what we inferred from the documentary & from the sponsor orientation package - it was incredibly humbling & gratifying to see how proud the staff & kids were of their amazing achievements, & we came away feeling that it would be hard to imagine making a bigger difference with our ongoing donations. We plan to continue our support of CCF, & hope that you'll consider joining us!

Global Links
April 23, 2012

Although my experience as a volunteer advisor & Board member with Global Links goes back 2 decades, perhaps it will provide some long-term perspective on the organization. In the early 1990's, I was an emergency physician based in Pittsburgh, but with a strong interest in global health (seeing patients, doing disaster work or conducting research in settings as diverse as Nepal, the Marshall Islands, Central America & the South Pole). Kathleen & her co-founder Brenda brought tremendous passion & dedication to their mission, working nights & weekends to build a network of hospitals & clinics who could donate equipment & supplies, to coordinate the complex logistics of delivering the donations around the world, & to monitor & evaluate accountability & effectiveness of the recipient organizations. They led by example & inspired a team of (almost!) equally hardworking staff & volunteers - a really impressive example of executing on an idea to make an important difference in the world.
