As we prepare to build a new facility for our children, we launched two campaigns to raise funds to support the project. The new facility will include more land, separate rooms for girls and boys, new bathrooms, beds and more. With the help from different groups in Winnipeg, we were able to host a Wheel-a-thon and an Open house event and managed to raise over $3,247 raised to help fund Phase 1 of this project.
Children Helping Children
On Sunday June 28th, a group of Children from the city of Winnipeg organized The 2nd Annual Wheel-a-thon for Mukanzo Foundation, a marathon on wheels with scooters, bikes, skateboards and more. The event was much bigger and more fun than last year's. The passionate participants were able to raise $2,282!!! to help the children of Mukanzo Foundation. Way to go boys and girls, the children at Mukanzo hear all about your hard work and dedication.
On July 2nd, 2015 we opened our doors to the public in Winnipeg, MB, Canada to present the Mukanzo Orphanage Foundation history, services and goals. The event was filled with drumming, singing, cocktail, presentations, vendors and more. We received tremendous support from the attendees who donated a total of $965 at the event to help our children with Healthcare, Education, Shelter and Nutrition.
We would like to thank our sponsor Amre Supply for supplying us with a Power Drill for our draw, all participants, vendors and volunteers who sacrificed their time to make this event a success! Without you we will not be able to give an opportunity to the children at Mukanzo.
