(WXIA) -- Ed Buckley works as an employment attorney in Atlanta, but his passion is in Haiti.
Buckley founded a non-profit called Water Life Hope, which has created safe drinking water for 350,000 of the country's residents. He visits Haiti whenever he can, installing wells in parts of the country without clean water and changing people's lives, especially those in hospitals and orphanages.
Friday, Buckley will be named an Ambassador for the Poor in Georgia by Food for the Poor. He will be honored during a Food for the Poor gala.
Ambassador for the Poor is a distinction given to people who demonstrate great compassion and give much of their time to the poor.
The world always needs more Ed Buckleys.
