Bringing Healthcare to the Hut

One major lesson ROWAN learned this past year is although schools and clinics may teach on issues such as AIDS, disease and general healthcare, these concepts do not translate into the individual home environment.

Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Surprise!

It was a joy to see them hold their shoes so tightly. The beautiful thing about Crocs is that they don’t
