The world is full of challenges right now. In this difficult moment as a community, we may not be together physically, but we are together in caring for people who are sick and in caring for people who are hurting. We are not alone.
There are many silver linings during this difficult time. We think this year’s Field of Dreams is going to be one. Because we can’t gather together on the field, we’re going to take you to the field. This unique, immersive experience is going to allow us to “travel” together around the world. Starting at home with our response to COVID-19, we’ll then travel to Guatemala, Lebanon, Bangladesh and Uganda. Want to know what it sounds like to walk through one of our clinics? Want to understand what it’s like to look out over the world’s largest refugee camp? Want to meet the people whose lives you change? That’s what our virtual event is going to be all about and we hope you'll be inspired to support our work.
