Kerri and her family have so graciously decided to throw a house party to raise funds and awareness for a Montreal-founded charity that she was recently volunteering for with her children. Mwana Villages, founded by a Montrealer and her Congolese husband, is a registered non-profit with the mission to provide orphaned and vulnerable children and their families throughout Africa with transformative hope and a future. Our first baby-home is located in Pointe-Noire, Congo. Unlike any other organization in this area, the Mwana home has dedicated "Mamas" that provide the type of loving care, quality nourishment and much needed medical attention that every child deserves, regardless of which side of the globe they are born in. The vision, as this small grass-roots charity grows, is to copy this model and build other baby homes in other villages in Congo and eventually throughout Africa.
On behalf of the board of Mwana Villages, we want to first thank Kerri for this wonderful initiative and hope that it inspires others to do the same!! We also want to thank each one of you for your generous donations and invite you to check out our website: www.mwanavillages.org and follow us on Instagram and Facebook (@mwanavillages) to keep up to date with all the stories that come through the Mwana home, both wonderful and heartbreaking, that give us the motivation to continue this work!!!
For those of you who do not wish to contribute online using a credit card, donations in cash or cheque can be brought to Kerri's party and tax receipts for all donations will be issued for the 2017 tax year, but will only be received in February 2018. For those of you unable to attend the event, but are still interested in donating, you may do so through this Donation page and you will also be eligible for a 2017 tax receipt.
You may direct any questions regarding donations and tax receipts, or even more information about the charity to the treasurer of the charity, Jennifer Torres (514.926.0027) email@example.com.
