Our latest interns at the clinic learned more than taking care of patients. They learned that it take more than traditional medicine to cure disease and work with an illness. They learned that it takes emotional, physical, spiritual support and hope. They were not only able to support medical teams but fill wells with clean water built with our partnership with Torch Missions. They visited the sick in the hospital where the parent can not be with the child as they have 4 more kids at home and no spouse. At the childrens home they provided hope and love to the children. At our warehouse they put together starter kits for the women learning a trade to give them a start in their new profession. They helped hand out food with our partners at US Aid. They built a home for a family that did not have one with the help of the Acklen Ave. team and Torch Missions members with Microsoft sponsoring the home.
People need clean water, food, vitamins, shelter and hope to take care of their families. We want our young people to learn to see the big picture in health care/wellness. This can only be accomplished by learning to look at a person as a whole, looking at everything that touches their lives each day.
They battle for their next meal, a drink of water, work, shelter and caring for their children. We battle to get as many as we can well enough to get through the next day.
It is great to see corporations and people come together to make it happen. A priveledge to be able to be a part of these things on a continual basis. Changing lives, one at a time.
