After a 10-day trip in DR Congo we’re back and happy to report that everything is peachy keen, and we’re excited about our next steps in Bolingo Village. We hope that you were able to follow along on social media, but if not, here are 5 things you may have missed:
Campamento Mi Momento 2019 is coming up in just a few short months! As we were reflecting back on past years, we found this lovely piece on the camp experience written from the perspective of GOF board member, Judy Miller. Enjoy!
Global Orphan Foundation has been my home, my heart, and my mission for the last few years. My dog and I picked up and moved to Indianapolis to join the GOF team in 2016 and haven’t looked back since. Once I understood that 1 in 7 children under the age of 5 was dying of malnutrition in DRCongo and that GOF was doing something about it, I wanted to do anything I could to be a part of the solution.
A lot has changed for me in this time frame (I met and married my husband, bought a house, and gained the love of three step-dogs) but the changes in my life pale in comparison to the changes that GOF has made. Not only changes in our programs, but also changes in the lives of the children we are lucky enough to serve.
As I start this chapter as US Director of Global Orphan Foundation, I want to take a moment to reflect on what we’ve already accomplished together.
