This Sunday August 2nd Inverness County Cares will hold a pizza sale at the home of Hermina and Ted Van Zutphen, 209 Main Street Port Hood. Pizzas will be cooked in an outside pizza oven and with delicious topping spread on a thin crust pizza. Pizzas will be available beginning at 10:00 so people can pick them up for the Chestico Days Boat Parade and will continue throughout the day. This sale is an important fundraiser, which enables Inverness County Cares to continue to provide food for the children.
Inverness County Cares is a local aide organization committed to help the students of the St Charles Lwanga School (SCLS) in Nairobi Kenya. These students are mostly homeless children who were living on the streets of Nairobi. They were abandoned because of extreme poverty or orphaned when their parents/caregivers died of AIDS. The children live at the school and Inverness County Cares donates $800 a month to cover food for all the students. SCLS provides these children with a good education, food, shelter and emotional support. These children now have the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty, homelessness and despair.
These last few weeks have brought great excitement to the students. Two shipping containers containing a pre-fabricated 64 person dormitory have arrived from Holland. On August 14th a team from Friesland, Holland will arrive and assemble the structure. This wonderful gift will provide comfortable sleeping spaces for students who have been sharing a single mattress with two other students.
