How The World Health Organization and the Frontera Fund Are Making A Difference

It has often been said that health is a person’s best wealth. Being in good health is an incredibly valuable resource because health problems make it difficult to do many things. Being in poor health can restrict someone’s quality of life, it can make it hard for them to work or to maintain a balanced life.

There are very few organizations that understand the importance of creating the conditions that allow individuals and communities to enjoy good physical and mental health more than the World Health Organization.

Since its founding in 1948 the World Health Organization has willingly taken up the mantle of helping to make people around the world healthier and to live lives that are not plagued by chronic disease. The World Health Organization is part of the United Nations.

If someone gave you three million dollars today what would you do with it? Many people would probably pay off all of their debts, run to the local mall and shop to their heart’s content or purchase big ticket items such as a yacht or designer clothing that they would have never dreamed of buying before.

While many people might dream of coming into what amounts to a small fortune overnight this actually happened to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists were were awarded a settlement by a court in Arizona that amounted to more than $3 million. There were many things that Michael and Jim could have done with their money.

They probably could have taken care of any financial obligations that they had, they could have taken the money and used it to fly to Paris, France for an impromptu vacation. But instead of using the money on themselves Jim and Michael had other plans for the settlement that they had received.

They ultimately decided to use the money to create a non profit organization that is known as the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is an organization that exists to support the work of other non profit organizations that exist to provide support to vulnerable communities in Arizona.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund has donated to organizations that work in the areas of civil rights and human rights. Some of the organizations that have received support from the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund include Puente, Tucson Samaritans, The Young Center, Promise Arizona and the Center for Neighborhood Leadership.
