Springfield, MO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
In August, Convoy of Hope hosted Dr. Frank Wright, President of the National Religious Broadcasters Association, in the Philippines where Convoy of Hope feeds tens of thousands of children regularly through its Children’s Feeding Initiative (CFI).
"Convoy of Hope is an extraordinary organization,” says Dr. Wright. “Every day the leadership at Convoy of Hope ask the strategic question: How can we fill the gap through creative partnerships, so that more hurting people can find relief, assistance and hope?"
Terri Hasdorff, vice president for Government Affairs for Convoy of Hope and Kary Kingsland, vice president for Global Initiatives, led Wright to feeding centers in Manila and on Cebu, the second most populated island in the Philippines. In both places, the team saw extreme poverty, but also children who are thriving since being enrolled in CFI.
“It was a tremendous honor for us to have Dr. Wright take the time to see our work first-hand in the Philippines,” says Hasdorff. “With partners like NRB we will continue to expand our work in the Philippines and throughout the world.”
