John L. Alex,
When a powerful tsunami decimated Sri Lanka and Indonesia in 2005, John, along with his sister Elizabeth, traveled together to some of the hardest hit areas, witnessing firsthand the destruction, homelessness, and desperation of innocent people who had lost everything. This experience left John wanting to do more and resulted in the formation of the United Aid Foundation. Over the years, UAF has expanded its reach to help people in desperate need following disasters in Haiti, Nepal, Louisiana, Houston, Puerto Rico, Alabama, and the Bahamas.
