Her particular focus was travel to Bosnia and the Caucasus of Russia helping arrange US visitor visas for the orphans. She voluntarily taught English daily to 136 orphans of war brought by Project Life to upstate New York from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bosnia, and the Caucasus of Russia. She helped a voluntary team to implement health, dental and therapeutic services for the orphans while they stayed in upstate New York.
