Br. Amandi Mboya and Br. Titus Kallon are two of the Brothers at Iona from Africa who have been working closely with the Tara Knights Society on this effort. Over the past four years, the Iona Community, together with the families of Adam Lynch and Jean-Claude Lovinsky, were able to raise a total of $10,000. The money raised was used to completely renovate a free primary school in Zambia as well as name classrooms after Adam and Jean-Claude.
In an effort to help reach out to the communities in need, Hands Around Iona was created. Funds raised this year will be used to construct a water well in Hamilton, an area located in Sierra Leone approximately 10 miles from the city of Freetown in Africa.
