Action+Hope=Success

Dr. John W. Munson and his wife Barbara along with support from missionaries from Wisconsin United Methodist Churches are doing their best to provide hope to over 70 orphans in Aworowa Ghana, Dr. Munson and his wife Barbara started the Aworowa project in 2006 to provide education, medical care, housing, and provide a bright future. Building self-esteem and instilling hope for a better future. Changing the world starts with people reaching out to help others that are in need.
