The 2010 Container arrives in Rwanda

Anitha and Yves thank the BC community
Our container was received by Go Rwanda on behalf of the people of Muhanga

On the first few trips to East Africa we took bulging suitcases filled with items from our communities, which made a significant difference to families, clinics and schools. And then in 2009 we purchased the 40' container and placed it in the Penticton (BC) Wal-Mart parking lot and held open days for donations of books, medical equipment, sports equipment and sewing machines - and the 2010 team still took numerous bulging suitcases!

In addition 67 vulnerable families received bins filled with appropriate household items - such as containers for carrying water, wind-up flashlights, pots and pans suitable for using on an open fire and small toys and school supplies.

We are no longer sending 'family' bins but wanted to give people in B.C. the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of the most vulnerable families in Muhanga.

Find out what we need to fill our next containers. Or make a donation towards the shipping.
