I am a physician who had the blessing to be able to work with the director of OKOA Refuge when she was a nurse here in Jacksonville, Fl. Her husband ran this non-profit organization. She worked as a nurse and gave half of her salary to okoa. The two of them adopted a little African girl, and then the whole family moved to Africa to help those in need. When I once told her I was in awe of what she and her husband were doing, she said: how could I not do this. Just one look in the children's eyes made me not be able to do anything else.
My family and I have been donating to okoa ever since. I urge anyone who wants to donate to a great cause to consider this organization.
