[“For indeed, the body is made up not of one member but of many… Nevertheless, God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that had a lack…so that its members should have mutual concern for one another. If one member suffers, all the other members suffer with it…” 1Corinthians 12:14-26 NWT]
When Senator Reid shared with the nation the unfortunate position of young Ryan Bowen, many hearts were not merely touched but some people felt jolted. It is always painful when we learn of an illnesses but it hurts even more when it affects one of our own.
The cry for help has gone out and we want to say a special thanks to Mrs. Marcia Anderson-Richards, the mother of Ejovis Richards of 2B, both of whom have suggested that each student could contribute $20.00 per day for the weeks leading to the end of April. This should provide approximately $500,000 towards the fee payment.
Ryan has nasal cancer and is in urgent need of treatment which will cost JD$2million. We urge you to support this member of our body who so desperately needs our help. Contributions may be made to the Matilda’s Corner branch of NCB at account # 371382879.
Remember, to some, Ryan is one boy in the world but to his mother, he is her world. Let us make every effort to help as we remember them in our prayers.
