Emilee Adair began as a volunteer at NPH Bolivia in July of 2022 and moved to NPH Honduras in January of 2023, where she currently serves. She is from the small town of Stroud, Oklahoma, and she recently completed her undergraduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology at The University of Tulsa. Her goal, after her 1.5 years of service at NPH, is to get her master’s degree to become a practicing bilingual speech-language pathologist. Emilee is very passionate about equal access to health care and education and she loves the field of speech-language pathology for this reason! Emilee has used the funds she received from the Hightower and Kloos Legacy Fund in 2022 to pay for the many costs that are associated with volunteering in Bolivia and Honduras, which include visa costs, vaccinations, her flights, and other expenses that have enabled her to apply her talent and skills to better the lives of NPH children. She is very grateful for this support.”

Rachel Nance is a volunteer at NPH Honduras, serving in both the Promotion and Development and Youth Development departments. Being from San Diego, California, she has always been mindful of the privilege that she was born into and has often thought of those who do not have this same privilege. Rachel has always had a deep desire to support communities that lack crucial resources like solid government infrastructure, employment opportunities, and quality healthcare. She worked as a social worker in her years before arriving at NPH Honduras, and she is passionate about partnering and serving vulnerable populations! The funds received from the Hightower and Kloos Legacy Fund will assist with costs associated with a year of service including flights and groceries. This financial assistance is very helpful and will ease stresses so that Rachel can better serve NPH Honduras and the children on the ranch. She is grateful to be a recipient of this fund and is focused on making the best of her year of service through honoring NPH and the beautiful mission that it acts out each day.”

Iris Ohlrogge is currently serving as an NPH volunteer in Honduras as the patient coordinator at the One World Surgery Center. She is originally from Madison, Wisconsin. In 2022 she graduated from Luther College with majors in International Studies, Spanish, Global Health, and a minor in Health Promotion. She feels very passionate about universal access to healthcare and providing low-cost health services to patients who otherwise cannot afford medication, appointments, or surgery. Iris feels very fortunate to be receiving the Hightower and Kloos Legacy Fund. She will use the funds to cover my flights, visa expenses, and general supplies. She is grateful to the HKLF for supporting her in this experience as a volunteer. This support will allow her to worry less about expenses as a volunteer and focus more on helping the people she is serving.
