I'm Dr Bob Arnot and I’ve traveled the world as a chief foreign correspondent and as chief medical correspondent for NBC’s dateline, Today and Nightly news, reporting on humanitarian disasters, our brave soldiers, and marines at war and the inspirational work of so many amazing aid Workers. As a physician, I’ve worked with some of the best humanitarian aid organizations throughout Africa and the middle east and seen how dramatically they can improve the lives of the most desperate.
On my TV show Dr danger™ I took these missions even further, engaging the pirates in Somalia, jumping into the depths of the Darfur crisis and patrolling for Taliban with the 82nd airborne in Afghanistan. But at the heart of every trip was the primary question how can we help make the world a better place?
The best answer is bringing sustainable development to these regions so that families and communities can build a future for themselves and help avoid the countless tragedies we see every day on the news. One of the best solutions is coffee. Why?
Coffee is a high value cash crop. If you reward farmers for great growing practices, they can thrive. Planting coffee trees also serves as a sink for carbon dioxide, to help reduce the burden of global warming. We started Dr Danger coffee™ as a way of bringing you the very best coffees in the world, telling you he stories of the best coffee growing regions and inspiring farmers to grow the best possible bean with the biggest possible benefits. To give back, we sponsor this orphanage in Kenya which cares for some of the most desperate children in Africa and work with farmers and buyers to encourage them to grow even better beans with a greater economic reward for them and their families.
