Giant garage sale supporting Chilliwack group’s efforts in Kenya

Voice of Hope group supports widows and orphans in Kakamega

A group of Chilliwack women are looking for local support for the work they do in Kenya.

Voice of Hope has been working to improve the quality of life for that country’s impoverished widows and orphans since 2013. Normally, they would be planning a trip to visit Kakamega, Kenya. But with the restrictions due to COVID-19, they have put their trip off for 2021.

Still, that hasn’t stopped them from doing their work here at home. They are planning a huge garage sale for Saturday, June 27 and are hoping the community will come out and support them.

Along with the COVID-19 health concerns, there has also been a food security issue around the world. The Voice of Hope group continues to support the women and children they are connected to in Kenya.

The garage sale to support their endeavors will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 7350 Barrow Road.
