Dr. Clarence

May 18, 2011

During a recent One by One program building houses for families in Guatemala, we met Clarence Freed.

Clarence is an Amway Independent Business Owner (IBO) in the US, but he is also a doctor – so of course he became popular for those of us with cuts, bruises and stomach ailments during our trip.

But until I started cutting rebar with Clarence and sharing stories, I didn’t realize how highly engaged in international medical volunteering he really was.

Clarence talked about his experience in Haiti. He was there when the 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Port-Au-Prince, giving medical care in a nearby village. He was immediately caught up in the massive relief efforts.

While it may have tested the limits of his skills and endurance, his commitment to care was already well established.

“Being in Amway over the years has changed my attitude and priorities significantly. This business has nurtured my dream to do third world medicine and it gave me the time to do my dream.”

Clarence continues to return to Haiti, and we hope to see him again next year in Guatemala.
