Review for Communities Without Borders, Newton, MA, USA
Communities Without Borders is a wonderful example of what can happen when a small group of leaders -- in this case, the organization's founders, lead by Boston physician Dr. Richard Bail -- maintains a passionate, human, connection to a cause and an outcome. I worked as a volunteer for this organization for roughly ten years (1995-2005) and watched as they worked to help AIDS orphans in and around the capital of Zambia to have sufficient food and security to begin attending neighborhood and government schools. Some of the students in their program have already graduated, now, from college! An important component of CWB's work is to get groups of people to visit Zambia and complete service projects with the children and their caregivers. In this way, CWB creates companion communities in the U.S. that sustain support for these vulnerable people year after year. CWB is a marvelous organization that is always looking for additional help!
