I am working in Fiji as a patient advocate for Ruel Foundation (Fiji). I will be helping to arrange medical treatment for Fijians in need, especially cleft lip/cleft palate repair. This might include providing financial assistance for transport, accommodation, food and/or specialty supplies as needed for treatment or accommodation of physical or mental needs. As well, I will be involved in providing or arranging physical, emotional, practical and spiritual support for those in need in Fiji. Along with meeting practical needs, I will be involved in youth ministry and mentoring young girls. My desire is to engage the local community to be a part of the solution, using local resources whenever possible thereby enriching the local community. My ultimate goal is to share the love of Christ with those whom I interact with in word and deed, and bring glory to God.
