a success story

INTERMED O.N.L.U.S., a not-for-profit organization of doctors needed a way to raise funds to build and support medical facilities in Africa. They had photographs that were taken in parts of Africa where they work and some letters written by children that they have cared for. They decided that they would publish a book and use the proceeds from its sales to help pay for caring for the children.
Laura Ruggeri designed the cover, the interior pages and provided graphic support for the launch of the book.
