Canadian Samaritans for Africa’s Pilgrimage of Hope and Friendship to Africa
Every year, Canadian Samaritans for Africa organizes a trip to Africa. This trip enables friends of Africa and people of good will who wish to visit Africa to see some of our projects to make a trip of a lifetime. This trip combines three things, a spiritual journey to some of the most important Christian sites in Africa, an opportunity to volunteer for a week or more at the sites of some of our partners who are working to change lives for women and the girl child in Africa; and four days of unforgettable African Safari. The trip this year will take place from July 31-August 12. We will visit the Uganda’s Martyrs Shrine; volunteer at Sr Rosemary Nyirumbe’s St Monica Girls School for young girls (http://www.prosforafrica.com/sister-rosemary ) who have been rescued from war; and spend five days on the African Safari at the famous Serengeti and Ngorongoro. For further information or to register for this trip send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost for the trip is 2000USD excluding air fare.
Pity is not enough, compassion is a real and deep human feeling, sympathy and empathy are good, but solidarity is better, and collaboration is the best thing we can offer to Africans especially the women and children who want to work hard to realize a better future for themselves and their children.
