Dr. Jack Allison

While in the Peace Corps in Malawi, Africa, and living in extreme circumstances, Dr. Jack Allison found inner resources allowing him to not only thrive, but to give the best of what he had to those who needed it the most. And he never intended to write the #1 hit song in Malawi or be described by Newsweek as more popular than Malawi’s own president. Since 1967 Dr. Allison has raised $160,000.00 with his music, and he & his wife, Sue Wilson, have given away all of those monies to various charitable organizations, including $30,000.00 to help feed Malawian children who have been orphaned because their parents have died of AIDS. His book, The Warm Heart of Africa is a page turner filled with stories about humanity and the impact this time had on his life.
