Fatma Hussain is the Texas A&M project ambassador for GGHTx.
An international student studying at Texas A&M, Fatma is pursuing a double major in both civil and environmental engineering whose focus and interests lie in building and scaling safe communal water supplies in developing countries. Given the high rate of fatalities that occur as a result of waterborne diseases, Fatma's passion is to adress the immediate and vital needs of communities, through improved and innovative technologies that will help ensure clean water for drinking, washing, cooking and sanitation purposes. After volunteering on a recent GGHTx mission trip, Fatma plans to use her knowledge, skills, and contacts to help spearhead a rural project with locally-based engineers involving the planning and design of a water-system which relies on the sound engineering principles that surround the PUR Water Purifying Sachet design and technologically agricultural irrigation sprinklers.
Elisha Hadi is the NYU project ambassador for GGHTx.
A second year dental student at NYU, Elisha is an active volunteer of GGHTx and no stranger to giving back. Having volunteered and served multiple communities both locally in New York and globally around the world, Elisha's driving motto in dentistry is simple: giving back smiles. Elisha hopes to use his dental degree to help create a large-scale and fully-staffed dental clinic where dental treatment is provided at no cost to all and every individual who cannot afford preventative and emergency dental care. Elisha believes that relief efforts are most efficient when the desire to help comes from the hearts of the volunteers, such as at GGHTx, and not from the mandates of a social program. Through global outreach, volunteer efforts, and a team that cares, Elisha is honored and excited to continue his volunteer efforts and to help recruit other NYU leaders to address some of the few, yet very critical health disparities underserved communities around the world are constantly battling.
