Do Good Local exists to aid us to obey the Lord's command to love our neighbor as ourselves.
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Starve poverty started out of a burden that Ron Fraser had after experiencing the extreme poverty of Mexico. After a couple of trips Ron realized the language barrier was too great for him. Ron had then been invited to Exuma, Bahamas to teach courses in marriage and individual counseling. He soon realized the economical struggle and the poverty on the island was far greater than just counseling. Ron soon changed his focus to “breaking the chains of poverty”. Ron has built a board around him who supports and helps execute the vision of the organization.
