When I clicked on a donate button on GoFundMe for the 2017 Tanzania Relief trip, I had no idea
Friends Together and Cathy would have such an impact on my life.
After visiting the Friends Together website and StraightTalkWithCathy.com I had to get involved.
I have been in video production since 1983 and have come to a point in my life where I can donate my craft to help others. There is no better way to share the people and experiences in Tanzania other than moving pictures.
Cathy, Garrett, and the other volunteer’s commitment to helping others is the perfect example of
unselfishness. Cathy is an amazing woman who has overcome so many harsh obstacles in life and she always has a smile on her face.
As a video producer, I try to distance myself from the subject matter. In Tanzania, I became
Immersed with the cause of empowering HIV positive women and their children. I have seen poverty in third world countries before but not the volume of extreme poverty and hunger among women and children that I saw in Tanzania.
Our 3 current goals for solar lights, reusable sanitary pads and the construction of the Friends
Together Tailoring School at TAFCOM is my priority.
Empowering these women and their children has become a focus in my life.
