Romania - Cluj
Using her spiritual gifts of mercy, discernment, and administration along with her audiology degrees and skills, Dr Tricia Towle has the privilege of being Christ-incarnate, offering comfort and Christ-like care advocating for the retired poor who could not otherwise afford hearing aids. Her goal is to help them hear better through low-cost, good quality hearing aids. She also advocates for families of hearing-impaired children to get the best possible hearing healthcare, sometimes through cochlear implantation, within the Romanian health system.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.
EVALUATE and ENGAGE
We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.
As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
