It should come as no surprise that Kari Wells and her husband, Dr. Duncan Wells, are deeply committed Humanitarian causes and organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, which pays for Doctors to provide medical treatment for people living in the poorest and most dangerous places on earth.
What really resonates with both Kari and Duncan is the organization’s humanitarian principles of medical ethics and impartiality: Doctors Without Borders delivers quality medical care to people in crisis regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation—and operates independently of any political, military, or religious agendas. The group provides independent, impartial assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or the aforementioned disasters.
The organization has over 3.8 million doctors involved as funders and/or volunteers worldwide, a group that includes Dr. Wells. In addition, he has participated in Medical Missions to Haiti with church groups and has gone to places in that country where the need is greatest. Kari Wells also works with Thriving Children Atlanta, a local charity for children suffering from many different types of conditions, illnesses, and disabilities.
Denise Mosely put together the Girl Power & Emerging Women event with the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce to help young women learn "how to navigate" the journey to a fulfilling personal and professional life. Kari will be presenting, along with other professional women who hope you will sign up, listen, learn, and become inspired.
"Girl Power & Emerging Women brings girls and women together with a common goal," Denise Mosely says, including "to guide and mentor girls positively as they grow into the outstanding women they were meant to be."
