Sri Lanka 2019: Rain? Not a problem...

Thunder overnight and heavy rains as we drove to our site made the team wonder what challenges the day might bring. Our Rotary partners feared the conditions may prevent some children from reaching the distribution site and receiving their precious gift. Our concerns were put to rest as we entered a large, sparsely lit auditorium filled with excited Sri Lankan children. The bedkits were stacked in rows, as their future beneficiaries lined up to be fitted with their new school shoes before their photo was taken. 700 more children will have a better night’s sleep.
