In 2012, we were grateful to the First United Methodists of Ashland, for generating proceeds from concessions that went to support the work of Paul Jeffrey. Jeffrey travels the world, documenting crises and the efforts to manage them. Charities worldwide benefit from his honest and detailed reports, and his photography tells the immediate stories of the peoples affected. See to view Jeffrey's important work, Global Lens.
