World Vision Canada is urging you the join other Flin Flon residents in giving a gift from their gift catalogue. Their Regional Rep for Manitoba Chris Schroeder says gifts can range from livestock to clean water to medical supplies for families in developing countries noting he has visited a community that received six goats from Canadians who responded to their gift catalogue and these six goats became twelve becoming 24 supporting more families. He says they were able to use the natural droppings from the goats to increase their yield on their crops, purchase sewing machines so they can make their own clothes and he’s just received word that that project he visited now no longer needs World Vision because they’re self-sustaining.
Schroeder adds last year nine people in Flin Flon gave just under 12 hundred dollars worth of life changing items from the gift catalogue. You can learn more at www.worldvision.ca/gifts.
