Tips for Preparing your Will
Ashley Patton

Ashley Patton spent nearly seven months serving as a volunteer Administrator at a Hope and Healing International partner eye hospital in Swaziland, the Good Shepherd Hospital Eye Clinic (GSHEC). During her time there, Ashley worked to organize files and keep operations moving. She also took part in a number of cataract case finding trips. These trips involved going out into the most rural locations in Swaziland to find people living with cataracts.

Read Ashley’s full story about her trip to Swaziland and how she’s seen the kind of impact a gift in your Will can have in the lives of people who need it most.
