Faith in Action: Deacon Don Update

Posted on May 14, 2021 by Published by

This just in from Our Lady of the Wayside’s Deacon Don Grossnickle:

So glad to share news of my MAAPF friend Pavan.

Pavan and I and MAAPF worked to support his research fighting deadly malaria. He needed a microscope and I found one donated by Wayside’s Mary Walters’s father a retired surgeon destined for a MAAPF clinic in Uganda. I connected with Pavan to support his work which can change the world dealing with malaria.

Later, Pavan needed malaria blood samples for his work. I contacted two of MAAPF doctors in clinics in Nakifuma and Nyenga Uganda. Through great effort and difficulty, the slides arrived for his work. I am so convinced this story points the way for more Uganda and US collaboration with student and other entrepreneurs.

Congratulations Pavan and MAAPF who joined this entrepreneur in carrying out a plan to change the world. We thank God for the gifts we share to love and serve others, especially those who are suffering.
