Happy Kidz Canada is humbled to embark on a journey of service to the children of Rwanda and Uganda.
Why Africa? With over 50 million orphaned children, a child malnutrition rate of close to 50% and roughly 83% of it’s people below the poverty line, it's pressing that we do our part to create a positive change.
Happy Kidz Canada desperately needs your donations and is ready to match up to $4 000 of money raised. We will be purchasing all food/school supplies from local online markets in Africa.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world” and please find it within yourself to give back. The children of Rwanda/Uganda and Happy Kidz thank you for your generosity.
Elise Mercy Orphanage – Rwanda
HKC is looking at improving the lives of 60 kids in the Elise Mercy Orphanage of Gisenyi, Rwanda. This orphanage gets its name after Elise Mercy who made it his life’s work to look after the children in his care. It is incumbent on the rest of us to help Mr. Mercy better the lives of these children as they are in dire need of basic necessities such as food, clothing and mattresses.
Bring Up A Child – Uganda
Bring up a child is a non-profit organization based in Bugiri District in the Eastern Region of Uganda. It was established to serve the homeless, distressed HIV/AIDS orphans and families marginalized with poverty. Working with the community members to develop and improve the socio-economic wellbeing of the orphans and vulnerable children to empower them become capable of responding to their challenges. The biggest challenge they face today is providing food and school supplies for the children.
