"What we do here at GWSPH everyday is work to address this fundamental question: To what extent am I (or are we), willing to contribute, (or to sacrifice), so someone we do not know, and are not likely ever to meet, might have access to health, housing, education, safety, the quality of life, peace, respect, and integrity, we want for our loved ones."
