CLWR- Ontario Baling Days: April 15 & 16, 2019

On April 15 and 16, 2019, the Lutheran churches of Ontario are invited to gather in Wallenstein for We Care Baling Days. Ontario Baling Days is a highlight on the We Care calendar, and we are pleased to extend an invitation to everyone in Ontario who would like to become involved.

To Donate: 
Beginning April 10, quilts, blankets and We Care kits can be delivered to the Christian Aid Ministries of Waterloo (CAM) at 3260 Bricker School Line, Wallenstein, Ontario. A special shipping label can be downloaded below and should be attached to every box of donations.

To Volunteer:
We are looking for volunteers of all ages to join us April 15 and 16 to help sort, fold, count, tape, weigh, label and load all the supplies into an international cargo container. Ontario Baling Days is a great opportunity for fellowship, to learn more about the work of CLWR and to make a significant contribution towards the alleviation of poverty and suffering. Please call 1.800.661.2597 or email Cody Cleave at cody@clwr.org for more information or to sign up as a volunteer. Packed lunches are recommended; a fridge and microwave are available. 

This year’s shipment will support The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) in Mauritania. LWF partners with people to engage in both long-term development assistance and humanitarian action. Through local partners and communities, they support locally- owned livelihood development, disaster risk reduction preparedness and health awareness. 

Much of the shipment will support the more than 50,000 refugees in the M’bera refugee camp. Located 60 km from the Mali border, the camp, which was established in 2011, supports those who have fled from violent conflict in Mali. This shipment will bring support to children, the elderly and young mothers. 

Thank you for your support!
