Dear Mr. Rob Raylman.
I would personally like to appreciate all the hard work and diligent efforts that you put in sponsoring my sister’s operation which was done at Uganda Heart Institute Mulago on 21/12/2020. The operation was successful and we thank God. Your dedication, desire to serve and willingness in finding ways to provide/help someone in need is an inspiration to many.
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you and other sponsors for your contribution. We are grateful and we value your support. May the Almighty God bless you abundantly.
Winston Churchill once said, “we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” it won’t be an exaggeration if I say you are an angel sent from heaven and with your support, my sister’s health has been restored and she is living happily.
Hope to see her grow into a useful (responsible) person that will one time lend a hand to someone in need.
Thank you once again for your generosity and support.
Doctor allow me to share with you my testimony in relation to what you did for me. I have a four-year-old daughter who was born prematurely at 7months with 1.4 kgs.
On 11th Sept 2020, she was making 4 years, I decided to celebrate it with premature babies with their mothers at the hospital where she was cared for four years ago (kisiizi hospital). In my little budget, I purchased a few of the things for the babies like jelly, soap, formula milk. I wanted to share love with them, inspire mothers and it was one way of thanking God.
The day went well, everyone was happy I guess even the little premature babies felt loved. It was a blessing. Little did I know that God had so much(mega blessing) for me in store.
That kind of charity(compassion) opened for me a door to my sister’s sponsorship for surgery. Sometimes God wants us to release the little we are holding on to receive in abundance.
I know the power of giving, we couldn’t afford the millions for my sister’s operation, but I assure you, blessed is the hand that gives than the one that takes.
This was also witness while in Mulago by how people donated blood for my sister, others sent us financial support. People we didn’t know. U lose nothing in being good.
I love you act of kindness and I promise to follow your ways as long as I live. Lots of love. Charity
Janet’s elder sister.
