Summer News 2015


It’s hard to believe it is already July! We are loving the summer, and have certainly been busy with exciting things!

eventslong2015_131926 June was a fun month for fundraisers – the Medicine Hat Chapter hosted their first ever Hues for Humanity event, as well as the Drive the Wagon golf tournament. Both events were a success, and between them raised enough funds to feed 50 students one hot meal a day for a year at our Education Support Centers.   This month, registration has opened for the annual Test of Humanity in Summerland, BC.  If you have never made it out to this amazing day of fun and mountain biking, sign up for this year! We always enjoy the race! expeditionsummer2015_120309 We took a great group of students from Okanagan College to both Ethiopia and Malawi in May. It was a wonderful trip, full of great experiences! The team was able to do medicals, and provide community clinics in rural areas, as well as introduce some local children to Frisbee – a game they had never seen before! We have just released the 2016 Schedule of Expeditions – take a look below! 2016Expedition1_102709

Myah also participated in our November 2014 evening at Medalta with her concept to help change the life of an Ethiopian family with $1000.  Her project came in 2nd place and she was able to present her ideas to the crowd. She’s turning into quite a humanitarian! 

Thanks to Matt, Chris and Ron from MNP for this 2nd annual award to pay the expenses for a deserving youth from Medicine Hat to travel to Ethiopia with the youth expedition.
