A note from Kim:
After more than 25 years working as a Registered Nurse in the operating room and private surgical and medical esthetics clinics, including travelling to care for people in the jungles of Peru, Trinidad, and El Salvador, I decided to pursue my dream of helping people through my creativity, compassion for others and small business skills to start Fair Winds Importing in January 2012.
Fair Winds Importing will work with companies, projects and artisans who believe in empowerment, dignified work, equal opportunity for education and medical care and fair wages for women, men and children.
I believe we can make a difference!
I believe we can change this world, one life at a time!
