How are you #StillServing?
I and two fellow Vietnam Veterans, Rodney Fritz and Nicholas Billows, are running a Chairity in the Ivory Coast, West Africa, the goal being bringing basic healthcare to people in remote villages of the country. This is our first year of operation and we secured an SBA loan to get us up and running and have since used our own funds to support our work. We have not taken any salary in the five years, and struggle to raise money. www.afrimednetwork.org
Why do you do it?
The more we as Americans can show the world we care, the safer we will be. Our Children and grandchildren will never suffer the challenges so many are experiencing in Africa. The faster we help to improve the medical conditions in Africa, it will help to reduce the threat of those viruses coming to our country.
