Money supports programmes in Rwanda, Burundi, and Jordan posted by MBCBL
The Manitoba Campaign to Ban Landmines (MBCBL) has forwarded donations totalling $7,100 to the Mulindi Japan One Love Project in Rwanda and the National Committee for Demining and Rehabilitation (NCDR) in Jordan.
The One Love Project provides free orthopedic support to landmine survivors and other persons with disabilities in Rwanda and Burundi. The NCDR is active in Jordan with demining mined territory along Jordan’s borders with its neighbours and providing mine risk education to youth in those areas. The NCDR also provides rehabilitative support to landmine survivors.
In total, $5,100 was sent to the One Love Project to support their work (US$4,643.54) and $2,000 was sent to the NCDR (US$1,763.36). All the money raised was sent directly to these organizations.
The MBCBL thanks all of the schools that took part in the 2008-2009 “100 Schools Challange”â„¢ and to everyone who donated money to support these organizations.
