Bio: 
My name is Andrew Sandford. I live and work in East London, UK. I am married to Lucy with whom I have two children. I was born on November 4th, 1981 in London. I am a graduate of the Manchester University with a degree in human medicine. I am currently working in a London hospital as a medical doctor - general practitioner. My great zeal to help the needy people led me into the volunteering life. I have volunteered in some countries including USA, UK, Uganda, Togo and Philippine. It was a great opportunity volunteering in Uganda - Africa, with ABA Foundation. I noticed and I think the hospitality among Ugandan people is the best in the whole world. I liked the reception and the entire administration of the ABA Foundation. I am planning to volunteer with them again if am given a chance but this time for a long time exceeding one month. I really enjoyed and appreciated the loved fellowship I had with the staff and family of ABA Foundation and the people of Uganda especially the local communities to whom I offered free medical services. I am so proud and thankful to God for enabling me to serve his people in Africa through ABA Foundation in Uganda.
Volunteering Experience: 
Volunteering is the most efficient way of being useful to the world, without expecting any tangible returns. I want to encourage all young people with a wish of changing the world to be a better place not to hesitate, but to go for it. By volunteering not only do you get to contribute to help others, but you also learn many useful and wonderful things. Volunteering is full of challenges yes, as the rest of the world is, but challenges are the things that make us grow in different ways. My experience is an example of this. ABA Foundation has been a huge learning experience for me and I can’t be thankful enough for having had the opportunity to join it. I learned a lot of things in the three months I spent with them! The best thing about volunteering with ABA Foundation is that it is actually a cross-cultural kind of service. When different cultures and different ways of thinking come together everyone goes home with new ideas of ways of doing things. I heard about ABA Foundation from a friend who had volunteered ABA Foundation and had a great experience. When I read the description of what ABA Foundation does and how I could help through working with other young people, I felt this was an opportunity I couldn’t miss! I really gained a lot of experience, made friendship with many people especially medical professionals and learnt a lot of interesting things about the people of Uganda especially those that work with ABA Foundation in Uganda.
