Donation Helps Vulnerable Children in Africa Receive Food, Education, and Basic Healthcare
Canadian Wellness Advocate Michelle McCann Rowan had the opportunity to visit Africa on a trip with the non-profit organization Hands at Work in Africa. Rowan says the experience was “life changing,” and she looked forward to the next time that she would be able to attend.
Hands at Work in Africa cares for orphans and widows in some of Africa’s poorest villages including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Swaziland, areas of South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
These communities have little access to food, education, and basic healthcare. HIV/AIDS is also a significant factor to the vulnerability of these destitute communities, especially among the children. Hands at Work’s vision is to be able to provide for these vulnerable children by utilizing communities of volunteers and locals in each area.
With the help of doTERRA leaders Steve and Kimberley Milousis, Rowan put on a fundraising event to raise money for this organization and the children in Africa that they support. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ donated a basket of doTERRA product for auction to this event, which, according to Rowan, “was a highlight at the raffle table and everyone wanted to win it!”
