In 1997, a 14-year-old boy had the chance to go to the Philippines as a Youth Ambassador for World Vision. There he met another young boy who lived in the slums. At once he realized that it was only by accident of birth that his friend lived in such extreme poverty. In that moment, Hugh Evans knew he would dedicate his life to making sure children like his friend would not have to experience such hardship.
