Family and friends from Merck & Co., Inc., the Souderton-Telford Rotary Club, and Care and Share Thrift Shoppes came together this week to help us collect beautiful clothing and sturdy shoes to finish packing a shipping container of medical equipment to be donated by Project C.U.R.E. and soon to be sent by partner, Evariste Yanogo, to Konkourona, Burkina Faso. Friends also donated books, backpacks and computers for the shipment, carrying with them such great hope for a better future for the village.
There are now almost 300 people who are part of the community of caring that has come together to improve access to education, water and healthcare in Konkourona. Together, we have accomplished so much in the past two years.
