Our Work in the Beautiful Albania with Luis JonasJun 03, 2022
Albania is a predominantly Muslim country located on Southeastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula — a beautiful country with a fascinating history, natural beauty, to-die-for Mediterranean cuisine, and colorful culture. For a long time, it was one of the last communist countries.
Known as Europe’s unpolished diamond, the country has untapped potential despite its many challenges. Tongue Out is one of the organizations working in the country with the mission to provide support and alleviate the quality of life for its citizens, with the help of no less than the organization’s President in Albania, Luis Jonas.
This episode features the rare privilege of having the organization’s head as a guest. Luis Jonas generously shares his time and lets us peek behind the curtains of his team’s hard work as well as the opportunity areas in the country - one of which is the health sector.
