At the end of May, once again we have the annual Help A Village Effort (H.A.V.E.) Walk for Water in Horseshoe Bay. This is a project that provides water wells for villages in India.
The walk will cover about 3 Km – the distance village women walk every day to fetch buckets of water for their homes – water which is often polluted.
The goal for the walk is to raise funds for three new wells. Three wells will impact the lives of as many as 300 people as they will be getting clean water from a village pump footsteps away.
Please join us for the 3 Km walk; there is a shorter 2 Km route… Or if you are unable to walk the route? Come for a visit, refreshments, and to make a donation. Lunch is provided!
The Walk for Water takes place on Saturday, May 28 – registration at 9:30am at St. Monica’s Church. Walk starts at 10am. You can find sponsor forms and a route map here: 2016 Official Registration WALK Form
Donations may be made payable to H.A.V.E. and mailed to David Phillips, 6610 Madrona Crescent, West Vancouver BC V7W 2J8
