about the founder

In 1986, Dr. William Jackson and his wife Audrey spent 3 years serving the people of the Philippines. There they found a great need for medical care for needy children. As a result, Dr. Jackson began the Deseret International Foundation. Now operating under the name CharityVision, this program has been expanded to serve many other countries.
