Rowan assists with urgent needsBridging the Gap

In development work, there will always be immediate needs to accompany the long-term projects implemented. Together we can fill the gap between today and their future.

As urgent needs arise, both Uganda & USA Board members vote together on how to best utilize these funds. In the end, the Uganda board knows best & leads the way.

How we’ve used funds in the past


Dug 9 wells across the community.

Bought a ultrasound machine for clinic.

Helped widow named Mary have emergency surgery.


Built and opened our own ROWAN clinic to serve urgent needs in the community.

Hired a midwife to serve community.

Covered a special surgery for a child named Zauma.


ROWAN gifted over 250 mattresses, mosquito nets and bed sheets at Christmas.

Built two homes.
