It was a lovely evening with good company and good food. Mr. Msomi, principal from Slangspruit Primary School in South Africa was our guest speaker. He showed a slide presentation and talked about the challenges facing the students in the Slangspruit Township and also shared the amazing progress that has happened at the school since the Canadians have gotten involved. The scholarships and milk that CHILD is providing is making a huge difference in the lives of the children.
Nils and Michelle showed a video and talked about the wonderful work that Metropolitan Mission is doing in India to provide a nurturing environment to 200 children, providing education, a home and nutrition to them as well as clean water.
$38 000 were raised that evening to continue to support the two programs both in South Africa and India.
