The idea that there are children all around the world today, at this very moment who are hungry with no food, sick with no medicine, cold with no shelter, completely rattles my soul. It makes me want to take them all home, to feed them, love them and clothe them, but I can’t. While I have an abundance of love to share we don’t have the room, or the finances or the ability to collect up and care for ALL of the world’s underprivileged children. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to though.
Then companies like Speroway step up and with the motto “Delivering hope to needy children” do the things for Children around the world (including in CANADA!) that the rest of ache to do but can’t possibly do alone.
I love the mission statement that Speroway has:
“OUR MISSION – Speroway, in partnership with caring Canadians, responds to the needs of children and their families, in Canada and around the world, by providing food, medicine, education and other essentials with Christian love, compassion and integrity.”
They aren’t looking past the fact that there are needs here in our own country, nor are they ignoring the needs of countries around the world who in themselves have much less than we do. As a non-profit Canadian organization, Speroway is working with Canadians to make a difference in the lives of children and their communities everywhere. With a variety of programs and options for supporters to choose from Speroway offers every family the chance to help out, in whatever capacity they’re able to afford!
Now onto the even bigger news, Speroway is raising funds to build a medical clinic in Haiti. So often we take for granted that when our kids get sick we can hit the local walk in clinic or pick up the medication they require at our neighbourhood pharmacy. Around the world there are parents holding their sick babies with no chance of help, no place to take them, no medicine to give – that has to change and Speroway is working on it!
To raise awareness about this newest project Speroway has created a contest just for us Canadians (excluding Quebec)!
