How do life experiences develop hearts of deep compassion? For Linda, it was first modelled by her father’s incredible empathy. Now, she’s put his legacy into action with 20 years of UGM involvement.
“It’s caused us to pause and really reflect on the needs of the people who are in crisis. Before anyone can get started on change, they need a warm meal in their stomach and a decent coat on their back. We want to make that difference in some people's lives. And if that happens, we'll be happy.”
