My work with Outreach began as part of a Strategic Planning Team. Since then it has expanded to include knowledge of their full operation, meal packagings in the U.S. and abroad, and participation in a mission trip to Tanzania. What strikes me about this organization is their "we'll get it done no matter what" philosophy. Kathy and Floyd Hammer, who lead Outreach, are extraordinarily selfless individuals, savvy business persons and extreme philanthropists. I have no idea how many meals they have packaged, shipped and delivered to those in need, but it must be in the millions by now. Their particular interest is in Singina, Tanzania. Not only do they bring two medical mission groups there each year who attend to the health and well-being of children, but they also perform dozens of surgeries on both children and adults. Their work in Tanzania includes building a children's center, a school, a girls' dormitory, a hospital, village water purification systems and more. Their American staff there has hired and trained Tanzanians to keep these projects working providing jobs and opportunities for families to improve their lives. The work they do in the U.S. in extraordinary, but the commitment they have made to Singida is literally changing the face of the community and lifting it out of despair and instilling hope for a better future.
