Amigas Ottawa was approached by Chance Foundation, a nonprofit organization, to propose that we together help with the build of the Emmanuel Orphanage and School in Jeremie, Haiti.
Chance, a registered charity run 100% by volunteers, was launched in March 2007 with the vision of ensuring ALL children have access to regular visits with a doctor, the opportunity to learn, and the chance to play and be a kid. They realize this dream, by focusing on three pillars which they believe are essential to the well-being of children;
(1) health, (2) education, and
To date, CHANCE has purchased land, new buildings are under construction, plans are in place to bring clean drinking water to the children and for the building of a well;
the Amigas Well.
On Saturday, February 8th at the Senhor Santo Cristo Church Hall, the gala will go a long way to raising the funds that we need for this part of the project. To make the gala a success, we need your support!
