AboutUs Hero


Dr Barbara Connor is part of the heart of JDF. Starting from the beginning in 2007 , Barbara and Dr. Dave Reed have led medical missions to the clinic about 8 times. Knowledgeable about tropical diseases and emergency medicine, the clinic wouldn't be possible without her or Dr. Dave Reed.

Having worked in El Salvador with Mission of Miracles, www.missionofmiracles.org, and recently doing medical work in New Zealand for 14 months, her passion shines through.
