We are excited to partner with Ancla de Amor orphanage to bring hope and healing to hurting children. This year Ancla has seen a dramatic increase in the number of children they are caring for and we want them to know that God loves them and that they are not forgotten!
Our project this year is to provide permanent housing for the staff team at Ancla, a team that is dedicated and committed to helping each child work through their difficult past. Many of the staff working at Ancla have been without a permanent home, living in temporary trailers.
You can also designate your donation to the fundraiser by including “Ancla Casita Project” as the memo on your cheque or eTransfer, or adding “Winkler MB Church – General Fund” for CU@home and emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to designate your donation to the fundraiser.
