Our Highlights of 2020

Highlights of 2020

Wings of Hope For Africa has had a few highlights of 2020.

It’s been a year of struggles for millions of people. From food insecurity to not having necessities, families and individuals have been impacted more than ever. Adding in the pressure of the holidays makes it tougher, too.

At Wings of Hope, we try our best to help those in our communities. We can’t help every single person, but we know the impact when we help one family at a time. We are proud of what we have accomplished this year!

Christmas Donation

This past Christmas season we launched a campaign: 30 days of Giving Hope from November 24th to December 24th. Our Christmas campaign supported families in Buterere, Burundi. The families we are helping have been severely impacted by the pandemic. With your generosity, we’re able to provide tools to help them during these times.

The donations also help break the cycle of poverty. Your donation gifts ranging from $5 for soaps and toothbrushes to $250 which helps sponsor a child for one year–helps tremendously and is greatly appreciated.

We were also able to help more than 500 families where we donated beyond meat sausages and ground beef in our local community of Calgary.

Covid Relief

Another highlight was our Covid-19 relief efforts this year. We have been supporting our communities with food hamper deliveries and gift cards. Since April, we have helped 1,850 families. In May, we had a food drive. We were able to provide 36 gift cards/groceries to those who needed it the most. We also made another round of food deliveries to individuals this past October. In November, we delivered fresh eggs to more than 60 families in Calgary.

We are grateful of what we have accomplished this year and we know that this was not possible without everyone who has volunteered and donated. It fills us with joy and hope that we have a support system that is continuously helping.

We appreciate your kindness, generosity and your willingness to help and share our cause.

We wish you and your loved ones a happier new year! Stay tuned for our 2021 plans.
