@reachoutww is finally letting go of our AV-X10, a one-of-one aviation themed Mustang with only 18 miles on the odometer. It’s up for auction at @barrett_jackson this Saturday and 100% of the hammer price is benefitting ROWW.
ROWW hosted our first Team Summit this past weekend, attended by many of our core volunteers from all across the US, to discuss and enhance ROWW’s operating procedures. We heard great feedback, learned new tips, had a lot of laughs, and left with an inspiring sense of camaraderie. Thank you to all of ROWW’s volunteers who’ve been with us for years, and for those who continue to subscribe and allow us to grow #teamroww. We wouldn’t exist without you. 📸@nikdans
Recent flooding has been an ongoing issue for the Midwest over the past two weeks. With river levels starting to drop we are continuing our assessments and conversations with local organizations to see how we can best assist those who have been affected. #roww#dogood#omaha#nebraska
THANK YOU to the 75+ volunteers that showed up to support ROWW! FuelFest was a team effort, and because of you, we killed it! We appreciate each and every one of you! Because of your help at events like @fuelfest, ROWW is able to continue sending teams to help those who need it most. Currently, our team is in Alabama helping those affected by the recent tornadoes.

The ROWW team is now on Day 5 in Beauregard, Alabama. The local residents have led our team into the hard to reach areas that have not been helped. Debris and tree removal and roof tarping have been the greatest need. While our team tirelessly continues to help those in need; it's hard to imagine how these residents survived this deadly tornado. This is the least we can do for those who have lost so much.
ROWW has deployed a specialized team of Sawyers to Lee County, Alabama. The team arrived yesterday and are already helping those in need. Team ROWW has reported that the damage from Sunday's the string of tornados and the EF-4 is catastrophic. 23 people have died and Search and Rescue teams are still looking for 8 more missing community members. Please keep Lee County, Alabama in your thoughts.
Devastating tornadoes left a path of destruction through Alabama yesterday. Our team is preparing to mobilize and help those affected by this event. If you want to get involved please go to our website at www.roww.org
Within days of a massive tsunami in Palu, Indonesia, ROWW deployed a small team of medical professionals on a tireless trek to provide medical aid in villages throughout the devastated area. One of ROWW’s volunteer paramedics, Cammie Cooley, documented our team’s daily progress: “We started Day 5 with a 5am wake-up and 6am departure to the airport. Dr. Michael had arranged helicopter transport for us to the small village of Sirenja. It was reported that the village was affected by the 7.4 earthquake and had only seen one supply drop in the 8 days post-disaster. The village is remote and ground transportation is limited due to the road conditions. The flight via helicopter is roughly thirty minutes. The supply drop to Sirenja left ten minutes prior to our departure as a security measure. On the course of the flight was smooth and we had a view of the liquification of the villages affected by the tsunami. Sirenja is a small rural village with a population of 300 people. Our pilot was able to land our team safely in a cow pasture outside the village… We saw a variety of trauma injuries: sprained ankles, infected puncture wounds, burns, cuts, broken extremities, and more within a wide age group. Wounds were debrided, wrapped, and antibiotic treatments are given to prevent further infection. Tuberculosis is rampant and we saw many cases over the course of the day. Patients were educated on the disease, coached to cover coughs, wear masks, and recommended treatment at the closest clinic. We also saw a variety of respiratory illnesses and other chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, and even stable anginas. Over the course of 4.5hrs, our small team saw 175 patients. When air transport arrived, the attitude of the villagers had completely changed. What had initially started as anger from their lack of support after the disaster, turned to smiles and gratefulness. They assisted us in carrying our supplies to the helicopter and gathered to wave good-bye. It was amazing to see the change and to be able to provide care to the people of Sirenja.”
