Bissler volunteers with Food For Life Global, and is doing relief work in tsunami-affected areas in Sri Lanka. But shortly after arriving overseas, he learned that the need for food has subsided, so Bissler donated his time to help an orphanage in Colombo-Gokulam, Bhaktivedanta Children’s Home.
"These kids have endured the most terrible, traumatizing experiences — some of them watched their parents killed right in front of them — yet they greet you with eager and playful faces children should have,” Bissler said by e-mail from Sri Lanka. “That is because they have a secure home and they know that they are loved. I’m fortunate to be part of their lives."
