Friends of Honduras Society - Annual General Meeting at ABC Restaurant, 2900 Douglas Street, Victoria, B.C. Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. All Welcome
Plans have been finalized and flights have been booked! A team from Victoria will be at the school in Honduras from February 23 thru March 7, 2015. Fundraising is ongoing and there are a number of projects that the team will be working on, including an upgrade to the bathrooms & septic tank/field, and ongoing planning/groundwork for a medical clinic at or near the school.
FOH continues to be blessed by the generosity of a wide range of amazing donors....a $1500 cheque arrived in the mail today and another donation of $500 was received at the end of last month. Thanks so much to everyone who continues to faithfully support the work in Honduras! Preparations are moving forward for a trip to the school in February/March 2015 with the intention of having a medical clinic built at or near the school.
Donations toward the medical clinic building fund are continuing to come in…fund total is now upwards of $5000! Thanks so much to all you faithful supporters who believe in this project. Another fundraiser is taking place later in August at the DFH Real Estate office parking lot…Ally & Dennis Guevin are holding their annual office bbq and part of those festivities will include a 50/50 draw and a donation jar with proceeds being split between Friends of Honduras & Santa’s Anonymous. Plans are well under way for a group from FOH to visit the school and local community in Honduras in the Spring of 2015…..very exciting, and more updates to come!
The FOH Medical Clinic building fund just received another kind and generous monetary donation from a lady who raised the funds by getting people to sponsor her on a per kilometer basis in the 2014 TC 10K….over $600 was donated!! A huge thank-you to L.D. and all her many sponsors….much appreciated!
The gracious folks at DFH Real Estate held a bake sale fundraiser for FOH today (spearheaded by AG...you know who you are!). Over $560 was raised and donated to the construction fund for the medical clinic in Honduras! Well done and thanks so much to everyone who participated. The fund has now topped $1000....a great start toward our goal of $50,000!
