A M G INTERNATIONAL
November 5, 2010
My family has been involved with donating to AMG for sponsering children on and off for many years. My father was the relief director of this organization for most of his adult life, and volunteered until his death. I have seen first hand the impact AMG has had, especially in Greece, and I am especially impressed with their healthcare ministry (for example, St. Luke's hospital in Greece). Because of my father's direct involvement, from when I was born, I know that AMG allocates the monies to the causes that they promote. For this reason I feel comfortable donating to AMG, in a day and age where we are bombarded with solicitation by non-profit organizations through the Internet and other mass media.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have actually visited St. Luke's hospital myself in Greece, and was awestruck by AMG's ministry there, and the high quality, cutting edge medicine delivered by this hospital. I have spoken to people who have visited firsthand the ministries of AMG in India, Haiti, and Guatemala, and have received positive accounts of their work in those places.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Ensure that the sponsored children engage in more regular correspondence to their sponsors. This has lapsed in recent years in my opinion.
Donor & I translated letters of sponsored children from Greece, from Greek to English.
