Children of Sudan
A Charity Close to my Heart
In 2007, I had the privilege of participating in a heartfelt initiative called “Passion for Sudan”.
I joined six other women and traveled to Sudan With a humanitarian organization called Canadian Aid (CASS) for Southern Sudan.
Our journey was made in an effort to help women in this area of the world rebuild their communities following 20 years of civil war.
In January 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, I continued to return to Sudan to run the Music and Art Camp along with Denise Pelley, an acclaimed London, Ontario singer, and other volunteers.
With the help of donated art supplies from Van Pelt’s Office Plus and other contributors, our camp has been a resounding success each year.
The purpose of the Music and Art Camp is to bring a new experience to the Sudanese children.
We wanted to bring joy and laughter to the children of this war-torn region. My hope is to return to Sudan again to connect with my new friends.
Each time I return home to Canada after visiting Sudan I am reminded how dear to my heart is this place and country I call home …sweet home.
