Miriam Tillman

Pharmaceutical work, Togo

Not everyone in the world has access to basic medical care. Miriam is part of a team that has established a hospital – the Hospital of Hope – in the town of Mango, about 16 hours north of Togo’s capital. The hospital provides medical care to a region that previously had very little. Miriam continues to learn French and the local language, plus run the hospital’s pharmacy while also training local pharmacy technicians.
