When Cameron Fields was given the opportunity to intern this summer at American Friends of Neve Hanna (AFNH), as our Young Leadership Chair, she practically jumped at the offer. Giving these children, from disadvantaged homes, a stable home where they are loved, given proper nutrition, work experience and lifelong friendships is something truly special. Having this opportunity to spread awareness about Neve Hanna and the amazing things they do, was something very exciting and important to Cameron.
As the Young Leadership Chair, Cameron’s main goal is to inform her family, friends and community about what Neve Hanna does, and the important impact they make on children’s lives. Cameron raises awareness about Neve Hanna through social media and teaches at USY (United Synagogue Youth) convention study sessions. She has been getting the word out to her community, that everyone should become more involved and support the Neve Hanna family.
In January 2019, Cameron had the remarkable opportunity to visit the Neve Hanna Children’s Home with her family.
The minute our bus pulled up to Neve Hanna’s campus, I could feel the love that Neve Hanna radiated. From visiting the Petting Zoo, attending a class with Rabba Liron Levy, followed by a delicious lunch, I began to discover what Neve Hanna was all about. We ended our day by playing a family basketball game and we all had a blast.
Cameron is an active member of USY and has been involved in Kadima (USY’s program for pre-teens). She has served on the Freshman Leadership Committee and the Religion Education Regional Board. For the past four summers, Cameron spent a month at Ramah in the Rockies. At camp, she was a member of the Jewish Outdoor Leadership Institute (JOLI), where she was Wilderness First Aid certified and was able to lead study sessions and be a CIT (Counselor in Training).
American Friends of Neve Hanna is pleased and proud to have Cameron Fields a part of the Neve Hanna family. Thank you Cameron for all you do. Together, we are changing children’s lives.
