Help Rolland Thawmas and Family

On Tuesday, October 9th, six year old Rolland Thawmas and his family were taking a walk down their street when an unidentified driver ran a stop sign, striking Rolland.  He was thrown into the air and tumbled over the car onto the pavement. The driver then backed up over Rolland, turned off his lights to hide his plate, and drove off, injuring him further. Rolland is being treated at Oshei Children's Hospital with a severe concussion and a fractured skull.  

Rolland and his family, Eh Ta, Thomas, Snow Queen and Peace Promise came to the United States as refugees from Myanmar.  The children, Snow, Peace and Rolland, are all active members of the nonprofit Buffalo String Works.  They are a beautiful family and have brought so much joy and light to the BSW organization and to the Buffalo community.

Please donate and share to help cover the cost of Rolland's medical and legal expenses.
