The Domino Effect

Mercy Beyond Borders currently has nearly 300 young women on full scholarships to high school or universities.  Each of them volunteers monthly in her local community.  That's one of MBB's core values: Compassionate Action.  

Here we see three Haitian scholars visiting a residence for abandoned elderly in the town of Gros Morne. The MBB volunteers interact with the men and women residents, some of whom are disabled, others afflicted by mental illness, others lacking any other place to live.  The volunteers sing with them, dance, play dominoes or cards, help them exercise, and most importantly, listen to their stories.  One thing leads to another. We're all connected. Joy spreads. Call it the best kind of "Domino Effect."
