The 5th One Person Shipping Container Departs

So many people to thank for helping us to ship our 5th forty-foot container! 

Penticton Big Steel Box have given us incredible support over the years and we totally appreciate all that Berry and Smith Trucking and Maurer Crane Services have done to help us along the way. 

Penticton Home Hardware and Summerland BC Tree Fruits gave us space for our storage containers (which were generously loaned to us by of Big Steel Box) and Penticton Wal-Mart dedicated parking space to the large sea-container. 

We couldn't do what we do without your help and financial and physical donations. 

Volunteers Dan B. and Al J. picked up and delivered 2 exam tables, which were generously  donated by Dr. Westby, Penticton.

Thanks to Interior Health, medical professionals, a number of School Districts, sports organizations, and local businesses and organizations we were able to fill the container with life-changing resources. 

We couldn't do this without our volunteers!

Muvuma Orphanage: Medical Support

The advantage of having an agent on the ground, and internet contact with the Muvuma ladies is that we know what is happening as it happens and take action. 

Frank was ill and Emmanuel was able to take him to the Kahama hospital where he received treatment and ongoing medication. 

When we visit we take vitamins, polysporin, bandages, band aids and non prescription painkillers to stock the Muvuma 1st Aid drawers that we set up. We leave clear written instructions as these items are not familiar to those who live in poverty. 

Contact us if you wish to sponsor a child or the orphanage as a whole.

You can donate on line or at the Summerland Credit Union or mail to The One Person Project 10108 Julia Street, Summerland, V0H 1Z5
