Met a very interesting gentleman today, with a very photogenic face. His name is David Eadie and he was named as a member of the Order of Canada for his work in humanitarian aid to the world's disadvantaged.
He is a master woodworker and has been a volunteer technical adviser with the Canadian Hunger Foundation and the Canadian Executive Services Organization (CESO).
He introduced new technology and techniques which are fostering self-sufficiency among indigenous peoples in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
Using his extensive background in sawmilling and furniture manufacturing, he finds practical solutions to local problems and his ingenuity became the cornerstone for many successful aid projects in Canada and abroad.
