Happy Friday to everyone!

At the beginning of this week, I was working on GMRF's(Global Medical Relief Fund)  videos:

"I'll stand by You" by Elissa Montanti, the Founder of Global Medical Relief Fund, Women's Role Model and Inspiration

It's very important to watch that episode to understand the importance of Elissa Montanti's work. It's important to read her book, “I'll stand by You” and take a step further into Elissa's reality and see the children she helps every day.
