I volunteer with a small, local, and 100% volunteer run charity that does some amazing work in Africa. It’s a great hands on organization that works with the local villages to help them, help themselves. We were over in the fall of 2022, helping build an irrigation system for their Women’s Market Garden.
We are doing a big fundraising event again this year (1st after the pandemic) and are reaching out to friends, clients, and associates to; buy a ticket, donate a silent auction gift, make a donation, come out, have a great night, and learn more about the charity.
If you buy tickets (and let me know), we’ll arrange to put together a few tables, so there are familiar faces (or at least one or two). Buy tickets at www.hatn.org

The theme for Hands Across the Nations 17th annual Great Gourmet Give is “Experience the Magic of Giving”.
Radio Personality, John Moore of “Moore in the Morning” will host and over 250 attendees will enjoy an evening of wine, gourmet tapas, live entertainment, dancing and silent auction at The Brighton Convention Center, (Toronto). Proceeds from the Great Gourmet Give will transform communities of women and children living in extreme poverty. Tickets are available at HATN.org at a cost of $175.
As a 100% volunteer-run organization, HATN relies on the support of generous individuals and businesses to further our commitment of changing lives community by community. HATN embraces global community partnerships with a focus on clean drinking water, healthcare and education.
HATN’s ambitious goal to raise $50,000 will be used in Jammeh Kebbeh, the Gambia to:
- Build a Bush Hospital to provide life-saving healthcare and maternity care for 9,000+ villagers who currently have little to no access.
- Install a water tower with a closed drilled well for the hospital. Finding and collecting water consumes a large portion of time and worry for women and children. Village wells are either broken and unsafe and water when available is undrinkable by most standards. The well at the hospital will be shared with the community.
4 Schools & 4 Health Clinics Built | 200 Water Filters Installed | 22 Sanitation Facilities & Greenhouses Built
HATN projects are a testament to our dedicated volunteers, donors and sponsors. Today, classrooms overflow with eager students ready to learn. Women attend night school. Medical aid is accessible, affordable and saving lives; increasing life expectancy, opportunity and hope. 80% of the water filters continue providing clean drinking water for over 10,000 lives.
Thank you in advance for your contribution consideration. We will provide donor recognition on website, social platforms, event program and public announcements.
