Aveon Williams, interned with Supplies Over Seas for six weeks this summer. Aveon came to work with us through his connection with Denise Sears, SOS President and CEO from her time working in West Louisville. He has learned valuable life and job skills including setting up and leading a sort group with his peers from Neighborhood House, letter writing, data entry and a variety of administrative tasks.
He also gained a greater understanding of global health issues.
"What I have learned at Supplies Over Seas is that when we are sick or not feeling well we can go see a doctor and tell them what is wrong and they can give us attention and care to help us feel better. In other countries it is much more difficult because they do not have enough doctors or supplies or medicine to care for all those in need.
At Supplies Over Seas I learned that a band aid really can save a life

Aveon will be attending Ballard High School in the fall and will be participating in the color guard. We hope to have him come back and visit us in the future!
