Bio: 
Cindy who is the second born of three children, two females and one male, started schooling at the Buffalo Primary School in Mannington, WV. She latter continued at Mannington college School where she completed her basic education. After that, she gained admission into Dallas University where she pursued a four-year medical degree programme. After successfully completing the course, she did a three month computer course at Delux Computer Training School. From there, Cindy attended Kennedy Medical Professional Training Institute and completed a two year post graduate diploma course in medical general practice in 1995. For her working life, Cindy started working on attachment with the Buffalo Commercial Bank (BCB) as medical officer in 1995. After her attachment period, the management of the bank extended it to 12 months after which she left there. Cindy worked for the Supercare Medical Company for three years, before she set up her own medical facility at Mannington - WV. The CINANT Medical Center now called CINDIC Medical Center. We attend to most of common medical issues including surgery and other specialized treatment because my team consists of a number of specialized medical personnel / Doctors. Cindy’s passion to help those in need pushed her in the volunteering world. I have volunteered in several countries including USA, UK, Uganda and Canada. It was an interesting opportunity volunteering in Africa, and a third world country – Uganda, with ABA Foundation organization headed by man of God Rev. Dr. Joseph Kiyimba. Ugandan people I think are the happiest people in the world. I liked the reception and the professionalism at the ABA Foundation. Cindy is married to Prof. Dr. Ryan Phillips. He is currently the Director of Manhattan University hospital in New York, NY. We have two children, a boy and a girl.
Volunteering Experience: 
I heard about ABA Foundation from a friend who knew someone else who had volunteered ABA Foundation and had a great experience. I applied because I would like to be an activist and make the world a better place. 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! 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. However, one of the challenges of working with the UK volunteers was those differences in culture. A funny example about me is walking. UK volunteers sometimes preferred to walk to field visits but unfortunately in Uganda people only walk because they don't have money for transport. That is something that challenged me for a while, but something I am glad of as now I really do love walking. Challenges are meant to leave us with a lesson, and they did for me. At some time, one of us was living close to a camp of refugees from Tanzania, and explained and convinced us how we could support them, as they were really vulnerable. We found out the best way of helping them was giving them the kind of healthy and nutritious food they don't get from government aid. So we approached the United Nations High Commission for Refugee staff, applied for the permission, and was granted. I spear headed this program on approval ABA Foundation and was so happy to see people’s lives changing for better. My message to others: 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!
