The way of hope. The way towards hope. I love the new name adopted by the former Feed the Children Canada. Speroway, a Canadian-based relief organisation, provides food, education, medicine, and hope to children in need, both at home in Canada and around the world.
For me, their focus on poverty and hunger right here in Canada is very important. Living in what is generally a very prosperous country it can be easy to forget that huge disparities in wealth exist within our own borders. We have our own share of hungry children going to school without breakfast and coming home to a distinct lack of nutritious food on the table. Speroway understands this and has distributed over $8 million in food and supplies across Canada through 110 distribution partners, with a special focus on First Nations Communities.
Globally, Speroway has done extensive work in Central America and Africa, including building a well, school and feeding centre in Guatemala and running an Abandoned Baby Centre in Kenya. Currently, they are focused on relief efforts in Haiti, specifically with a view to building a much-needed medical clinic there. Haiti is still recovering from the devastation of the 2010 earthquake.
To bring attention to their new name, website and Facebook page, and to raise money for their efforts in Haiti, Speroway is hosting a fabulous contest. It is a Share & Win contest, so entrants can gain extra entries by sharing their personalised contest url with their friends and family. After submitting your entry, and sharing the contest if you wish, you will also be presented with the opportunity to donate online. However, donations are not required, and donating will not increase your chances of winning. (But if you can donate, it will give you a really special feeling of helping those in need!)
