We are nearing the end of October and, here in the US, that means one thing – the holiday season is fast approaching. We at ROWAN have been busy putting things together for this year’s Christmas campaign, and we can’t wait to share it with you over the week of Thanksgiving!
Your generous donations during our annual Christmas campaigns have made a difference in the lives of so many. When Uganda shuttered schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your contributions to our 2019 campaign – Education Opens Doors, allowed Rowan to continue our children’s educations through the learning center. And when Uganda went under lockdown due to the pandemic, ROWAN was able to get much-needed food and supplies to our members with the bus your donations funded during last year’s Christmas campaign.
With the lockdown in Uganda in effect through the end of January, this Christmas will look a little different for our ROWAN members. While they may not be able to gather together to celebrate, we are hoping that with your help, we will be able to deliver baskets of joy to each of them.
We at ROWAN believe hope, faith, and love can prevail – even in chaotic times. Helen Keller once said, “Alone, we can do so little; together we can do so much.” We are so grateful for the love shown by our sponsors and supporters. It is because of you that we have had the privilege of witnessing the power of love in action – a truly wonderous sight to behold.
