Change Her World 10th Year of Celebration

COVID – 19 Update from the Change Her World Board:

It is with much heartache that the Board of Directors met today – March 16, 2020 –  and in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic – made the decision to cancel the 10th Annual Change Her World Celebration Dinner  (April 18, 2020) and the CHW Community event to be held in St Marys (April 26, 2020) as well as the Travelling Photo Exhibit. Many preparations had been put into place and all was in readiness for the arrival of Esther and Sellah from Malawi and many others from across the country to join with us in this special event.  However, despite the chaos all of us are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the health and welfare of all our supporters is paramount.

For those of you who purchased tickets for the Dinner, we will provide you with (1) a full refund or (2) you may donate the cost of the ticket to Change Her World and receive an income tax receipt for the full amount paid. If you purchased your ticket through our website, the same options apply. Please contact Carol Hamilton at (519) 271-8701 to indicate how you would like us to proceed with your refund.

Our plan is to gather for a celebration themed event for our 11th Annual Dinner on Saturday April 17, 2021. No annual dinner will be held this year.

None of us know what the next days or weeks hold for us.  What we do know is that Change Her World will continue to help many girls and women in Northern Malawi thanks to the support and generosity of all our supporters.  Please do not hesitate to contact Linda Willis (519) 271-5598 or l.willis@rogers.com  or Carol Hamilton (519) 271-8701 or chamilton@changeherworld.ca  should you have any questions or concerns. Together we will stand to meet the challenges before us!

With thanks for your support!
