“It was apparent to me that some fellow IUP alumni or students had been there as well,” Matthew said, as evidenced by the photo at right.

Matthew is a National Youth Development Specialist for World Vision.

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
