CRS Rice Bowl Speaker from Ghana
March 25, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come hear Thomas Awiapo’s inspiring story of survival and success. Orphaned before the age of 10, Thomas survived bleak poverty and hunger in his small African village in Ghana. At age 12, his search for food led him to a school where Catholic Relief Services (CRS) – with funds contributed through the CRS Rice Bowl program – was providing lunch.
Because of this food, Thomas survived and continued school, earning a master’s degree. Today, Thomas works for CRS and trains community leaders throughout Ghana. Thomas shows us how our participation in CRS Rice Bowls brings compassion, food and hope around the world.
