On behalf of Canadian Lutheran World Relief I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the many people and churches that made BC Baling Days 2013 a profound success. Thank you to the quilters, the kit assemblers, the drivers, the warehouse volunteers, those that generously made a financial contribution towards shipping costs, and the Mennonite Central Committee for once again being excellent hosts and partners at their facility.

In all, 13,017 lbs of humanitarian aid was loaded into our container, which will reach Tanzania later this summer. Included were:

2,007   Quilts & Blankets

696    Baby Bundles

712    Assorted Kits

A special thanks to our new friends at the Compassionate Resource Warehouse (Victoria) for donating an amazing assortment of tools, clothes, toys and other supplies. We hope that they will be a big part of the We Care program’s future.
