Shining as an example of heroic humanitarianism, we have an observant Jewish doctor working with Mother Teresa’s Catholic Mission and a devout Baptist surgeon to save the lives of Muslim & Christian children. #BringBackHope 

The Bring Back Hope Initiative and related "Evening to Bring Back Hope", established in 2012,  honour and support an extraordinary person, Dr. Rick Hodes, who has devoted his personal and professional life to Ethiopia’s poor and sick.


In the course of Rick’s 27 years of service, as Medical Director for the Joint Distribution Committee and working with the Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity and hospital clinics, Rick treats people of all religions and ethnicities suffering from heart disease, cancer, scoliosis and tuberculosis of the spine.
