“This book is excellent! It contains the much needed global perspective and real friendship—concepts often neglected by many of us. In addition, it is not about giving. It is about collaboration, which makes it more meaningful. It is about getting involved–so we can jointly find real solutions. This shows a sense of ownership and commitment to resolve a major epidemic.”
— Dr. Julio C. Carvalho, Global Educator
