In a cruel, crazy, beautiful world, nothing inspires me more than the acts of charity and compassion of ordinary individuals in some of the most remote and underserved regions of the world. Few Americans have visited places like Kara, Togo, and the dirt-poor towns and villages that benefit directly from Hope Through Health's support. Yet the organizers of HTH have chosen to dedicate a significant portion of their lives supporting people living with a dreaded disease - HIV/AIDS - who refused to die quietly, and decided instead to organize their own health care. Just seven years later, more than 1,200 individuals benefit directly from that determination and the partnership it inspired. I joined the board of Hope through Health in 2009 and recently signed up for a second three-year term. This is an amazing group that is making a difference in the most modest surroundings... it's an example of what can happen when good people refuse to ignore the problems of the world around them and extend a helping hand.
