Review for Cambodian Community Dream Organization, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I visited this organization in January 2019, having met almost by chance Jenni in Florence. Her description of what CCDO was doing fired my interest, I had to see with my eyes, but the reality is by far superior to any imagination.
CCDO is superiorly well managed in a simple but effective way, their finances are transparent and what they accomplish is astounding. In the schools, the focus is on education but there are many other things going on: for example the breakfast program for the student, teaching English, the vegetable garden, and of course the scholarships.
Then there are other programs, like the 'clean water' one, with water wells and latrines, about which you can read on their website. The 'piglets' program is another brilliant program.
I attended a workshop on hygiene; the villagers gathered all together while a lecture was given. I was very impressed by the wide participation of men and women, by the attention with which they followed, by the questions they asked.
But moreover by their high respect for CCDO and its officers.
It is a great organization, go and see for yourself, you will be amazed.

Review for Spondylitis Association of America, Van Nuys, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been diagnosed AS here in Italy but wasn't given many information, especially as far as the entheropatic form is concerned.
The SAA website was a happy discovery and I decided to become a member, not only to support it but also to keep updated with the latest discoveries. I love the webinars.

Review for Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals Inc, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I saw the birth of the Foundation and from the beginning I was moved by the depth of the feelings that inspired it. I have always been in admiration of Elaine's ideals, passion and committment. She is doing a great job, I heve seen her work in hospitals here in Florence and felt very proud to know Elaine and be her friend.
