Located in the Saang District of Cambodia, Sak Saum is a ministry dedicated to the prevention, rescue, restoration, transformation, and rehabilitation of vulnerable and exploited women, men and children. From the beginning, our goal has been to create a nurturing, empowering, restorative program which facilitates vocational training in sewing excellent products and community development. Sak Saum is a pioneer model of self-sustaining ministry. Funds raised will support this incredible organization’s effort in bringing dignity and hope to those they assist!
Funds raised for for Restoring Hope Ottawa will help launch their new day program - ARISE. It is for sexually exploited women and survivors of human trafficking being launched this fall/winter. It is an important entry point where rescue takes place and hope begins. This program will offer a safe space where clients can receive various support services; such as counselling, life skills, self esteem building as well as experience the joys of art and animal therapy within a healthy and loving environment. Funds received will help cover the cost of a new lease space as well as required renovations. Thank you for your generous support and care!

Due to the impact of COVID 19 Virus, we have had to suspend planned trips to Nicaragua. We will continue to partner with schools in Matagalpa, and Tipatapa, once it is safe to do so. Details for future opportunities will be provided as soon as circumstances allow.
Our Fall team leaves as soon as Covid restrictions allow us to set a date and will be serving with Haiti Arise and Haiti Cardiac Alliance. Medical personnel will be assisting the clinic in Grande Goave. In Port-au-Prince, we will be assisting Haiti Cardiac Alliance to establish a nationwide lending resource for Holter and Loop monitors. We are grateful to the Ottawa Heart Institute for their partnership in making this possible. Other team members will be involved in construction and educational opportunities. Contact us if you want to be part of this exciting team.
While social distancing has been helpful in preventing the spread of COVID19 in the Dominican Republic, it has also been a source of distress for the impoverished seniors living in Bateyes communities. These seniors are faced with this unfortunate reality: by distancing themselves from their community, they are cutting themselves off from the financial support they rely on to acquire their most basic needs especially the most important ones that are food and medicine.
Although some financial aid is available through the Dominican government, most people are not able to access it. Prior to the pandemic, the seniors were mostly supported through their social network, which includes extended family members, neighbours, and the broader community. Since social distancing took effect, this network, which consists of day labourers in construction, market vendors, and entrepreneurs, has dissolved as lockdown rules were put in place and as members from this network have lost their income. As a result of this disruption a large part of the senior community is left unsupported and at risk of starvation.
Any assistance you can offer will go a long way. A contribution of $30 can provide an individual with two weeks' worth of essentials. Thank you for considering this critical need!
We know these are very difficult times of uncertainty no matter where you live. and are so grateful for any assistance you can give. When donating, please put BATEYES SAN PEDRO PROJECT in the comment box in the form.
