Come hear about our growing and warm relationship with the Unitarian Fellowship in Rutana, Burundi. Two years ago, UCV helped buy sewing machines for the successful Women’s Sewing Project, employing 6 women. Last year, we raised money to erect the foundation, walls, and roof for their new church. This year, we hope to raise funds to finish the interior and furnish the building. Along the way we’ve gotten to know each other through shared stories about our very different lives in Burundi and Canada.
The service will include African music, a talk from our Unitarian, Burundian refugee (one of 12 Burundians the Refugee Committee is sponsoring this year!) and greetings from Gerard Niyungeko, minister of the Rutana Fellowship. Please join us for an inspiring service.
