HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS

Operation Said MARAM
In a traffic accident in Morocco Said MARAM lost a leg. Since he was the only source of support for his extended family, Anne-Marie CARTER who heard about Said MARAM's story led a very successful fundraiser to fly Said MARAM to the United States, get Said the best surgeons in Oregon to operate on his badly damaged other leg, and get him the best leg prosthesis so he could regain full employment. In 1994, Anne-Marie' CARTER incorporated FNT in the State of Georgia. She now works in New York for Davis Polk and Wardwell, a prestigious international law Firm
