Rohana is a deaf young man whose line of work is carpentry. Since he lost all of his equipment in the tsunami, he is seeking help to buy a set of carpentry tools. The whole set that would help him to provide for himself and his family again, would cost about US $700 including a multi-purpose saw machine. Your support is highly appreciated!
The accounting firm of Miller, Kaplan, Arase & Co., LLP in Los Angeles, took on the project of raising the funds for Rohana as part of their "MKA Miles" marketing game. In the process, employees are challenged to better their communication, marketing, business, philanthropic and networking skills by taking on projects in their own community and around the world. They are pleased to contribute to Real Medicine while further developing their own abilities.
The funds for Rohana have arrived in Sri Lanka, and he is in the process of receiving his replacement carpentry tools. Pictures will follow as soon as they are available.
The fundraising efforts for Rohana achieved more than double the amount aimed for. Thank you to everybody at Miller, Kaplan Arase & Co., LLP for your commitment, support and generosity!
