I love this organization!
Here's what their website says:
"Our mission is to empower the poorest, at-risk children of families working in the community of the Guatemala City garbage dump, by creating opportunities and fostering dignity through the power of education. We share the vision that within a safe and caring environment, every child participates in an integrated program that fosters optimism, good health, educational achievement, self-esteem, and confidence. Children and parents discover that, through their own efforts, they can move beyond poverty.
Join us in our efforts to provide hope and opportunities for the Safe Passage children and their families."
Women of Means
Women of Means is a physician-run organization that sends teams of volunteer doctors and nurses into shelters in and around Boston to cut through red tape and provide free, patient-centered medical care to women and children.
Dr. Roseanna Means, founder of Women of Means, believes that society's neediest women and children deserve accessible and compassionate health care, and should not have to sacrifice scarce cash, safety, warmth and food to get basic medical help.
