TCU: Visiting scholar talks faith, global humanitarian aid work
12 November 2017
Forth Worth, Texas, United States
Excerpt from the interview:
Black smoke fills the sky. The repeated pop of gunfire rings out. Bodies cover the ground. Yet one man chooses to run into all of this, not away, in order to rescue a little girl hiding behind her dead mother.
That man is David Eubank. He is the founder of the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) organization and TCU QEP visiting scholar.
Eubank is a former U.S. Army Special Forces and Ranger officer who served for 10 years. After leaving the military, Eubank went to seminary and then, along with his wife, joined together with the people of Burma to establish the humanitarian aid organization. Eubank said the organization tries to give “health, hope and love to people under attack.”
Eubank said the organization started in Burma because a tribe from the area asked Eubank for help.
“I saw the evil and the injustices happening against people in Burma right in front of my eyes,” Eubank said.
