World Vision Canada is urging you to join others in Flin Flon in giving a gift from their gift catalogue. In the past five years Flin Flon residents have donated 55 hundred dollars to their gift catalogue. Their Regional Manager in Manitoba Chris Schroeder says gifts can range from clean water to school and medical supplies to livestock for families in developing countries giving the example of a community receiving three goats and they were able to use their milk for their communities but also sell it at the market which gave them additional income which they used to buy sewing machines for their community so that youth were able to sew clothes for those who live in the area and these youth started selling those clothes at the market which gave them additional income as a community which they in turn used to purchase more livestock to help them with their crops in regards to having equipment for that.
Schroeder says this community is now self-sustaining so you know someone is receiving a gift that can significantly change their lives. You can learn more by visiting their website www.worldvision.ca/gifts.
