Our Founder's Story

 

My name is Angelina Joseph. Growing up in Paris, France, I discovered a prominent magazine “En Mission avec Eux” (“In Mission with Them”), that captivated me as it described the life and work of missionaries in French-speaking Africa and the Caribbean. The vivid photos and amazing stories helped me as a youngster to mentally escape the winters of Paris. Seeing the suffering of the communities, I was compelled to support them in any way I could.


After moving to the United States, I began to volunteer in my church and with UNICEF and the Red Cross. I discovered practical methods for helping communities effectively. Through this experience, I found it is crucial to address not only social issues like health, education, and nutrition, but also engage in economic development and environmental advocacy and protection; This is what makes HFAM different from other charities.


After completing two Masters in Psychology and Divinity, in Berkeley and training at Stanford, I founded Health for All Mission. The objective of Health for all Mission is to create a holistic and comprehensive model for improving the lives of impoverished people in developing countries. I developed partnerships in the USA, France, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, and Belize to support initiatives and projects focused towards alleviating human suffering and fighting poverty in our world today.



Please join us! Together, we can make a difference.
