Introducing the new FreddyLink logo

The FreddyLink logo was updated to celebrate the progress we have made over the past decade. The upward reaching figures in the new logo symbolize the new freedom and joy of the families in Haiti as they break free of the cycle of poverty. Freedom from malnutrition, from childhood diseases, from a lack of educational and vocational opportunities, and a new hope for the future – certainly something to celebrate.

We have helped the Area Development Programs of COBOCOL and of UDICC make the long journey from extreme poverty to self sufficiency. What a wonderful achievement that we are all proud to be a part of! Now we turn our focus to the Area Development Program of Morne Pelee as they too begin the long journey to self sufficiency. Join us in making a lasting difference in this community as they too break free from the cycle of poverty.

Congratulations to our top fundraisers!

The World Vision Global 6k for Water was a national event, with 1,908 registered participants across Canada. I am proud to say that the top two fundraisers are both from the Fredericton area!

Congratulations go out to Bernie Zebarth, the number 1 fundraiser, and Anitra Parks, the number 2 fundraiser, for all of Canada – well done!

There was also a draw for two prizes for anyone who raised over $100, and Angela Cushing of Fredericton won one of these prizes. Congratulations Angela!

We can be proud of all 110 registered participants for the Fredericton Global 6k for Water for doing their part in raising over $33,500 to help provide access to clean safe water supplies for children and families in Haiti. What a great effort by all !!

What does a WASH program look like?

The Fredericton Global 6k for Water raised over $33,500 for water projects in the Morne Pelee Area Development Program in Haiti. These water projects are under the WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) program of World Vision.

But what will this WASH program look like? Here is one example of a recent achievement under the WASH program in Morne Pelee.

Funds raised under the Fredericton Global 6k for Water will support projects like this to increase access to safe clean water, build latrines, and provide education on good hygiene practices.

Fredericton Global 6k for Water was a HUGE success

We had set out to raise $15,000. In the end, we raised more than $33,000!! That is about 220% of our goal – amazing!

We had great participation in the event. Close to 110 people registered to participate in the walk, mostly in the Fredericton, Oromocto and New Maryland area. We also had participants in Woodstock and Moncton, New Brunswick, Truro, Nova Scotia, and even in St. John’s Newfoundland.

It was a beautiful day for the walk. People enjoyed getting out as groups (according to COVID guidelines), families, or individuals. Many four-legged friends also came along for the walk! It was a great chance for people to take a tangible steps to help those in need, to spend time with family and friends, and to enjoy the great outdoors.

On behalf of us here at FreddyLink, and on behalf of World Vision, we want to thank all of the participants, and the many, many generous donors, who made this event such a success. Your participation and support will make a huge and tangible difference to the lives of children and families in Haiti !!
