My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Flying Hospitals, Macau SAR, , Macau
I am the CEO and co-founder of the Bottom Billion Fund, a nonprofit, microfinance investment fund. We are committed to investment in high quality microfinance that includes people living in extreme poverty (living on less than $1.25/day). We believe in sustainable and scalable solutions that improve the incomes and opportunities of our poorest brothers and sisters. Often for these poorest clients, access to the basics of primary health care is a major challenge and a powerful way to end preventable child and maternal deaths,
Global Flying Hospitals and its founder Neill Newton came to my attention through my friend Peter Young, who introduced me to Neill. Neill's vision of providing temporary, high quality health care in remote areas as a stepping stone to permanent clinics and hospitals is right on the mark.
The poorest people in poor countries and regions in the world need access to health care. Global Flying Hospitals is a wonderful solution. I laud this vision and urge broad support to save the lives of women and children.
