Stories of Joseph
Shared by Family & Friends
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Joseph’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
St. Jude Children's Hospital
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of its founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Water Wells for Africa
After witnessing young girls in Southern Malawi walking several hours a day to collect diseased water and return carrying 40 pound buckets full on their heads, Kurt Dahlin simply wanted to help. His desire led to the founding of Water Wells for Africa, and in 1996 the first borehole well was installed in the Mchiwa/Mulanje district for a single village. By 2000, WWFA was able to bring 26,000 people fresh water and as of 2014, the organization has brought sustainable water to over 260,000, empowering communities and changing the lives of local villagers throughout the region.
