As an accredited member of the SOE (Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission), our goal in the GO office is to mobilize volunteers with excellence.
In order to execute excellent missions, three things are essential: an enthusiastic goer, an efficacious sender, and an eager receiver.
When all three come together it’s extremely exciting!
Last month, Dr. Joseph Clawson made his second trip with CURE to our exotic hospital in Ethiopia. During his trip, Dr. Clawson was exceptionally energetic; correcting 18 cleft lips (see the photos in this post for evidence!). Dr. Clawson’s trip was a successful excursion indeed. Upon his return he expressed some encouraging words, about our embracing, efficient and, effective, employees.
Here’s an excerpt:
The staff in the hospital was outstanding. They were well organized and carried out their responsibilities very well. They almost spoiled me as they made sure I had everything I needed to carry out this mission, and I didn’t have to be concerned at any time that something was not being done. Essentially, I could not have had a finer team, not only in the operating room but in recovery and on the floor as well.
In addition their administration was also excellent in arranging all my other needs such as transportation and communication.
Complementing their staff, they had a pediatrician, Judy, and an anesthesiologist, Mary Bernard, who were excellent to have on board. You couldn’t have a better administrator than Eric along with his great administrative staff.
After receiving such a kind exchange of words, we are euphoric and offer praise to God for everyone who helps to make these expeditions easy! Thanks for your engagement in the work of CURE; you always exceed our expectations!
