Our Beginning

Our Beginning

Nov 2017 – Supply Lines is the official newsletter of International Hope Canada. Originally it began as a paper newsletter but with the rapid rate of technological change and because we have partners world-wide, we have decided to include stories from past issues of Supply Lines on this blog so that you, our readers, can enjoy the stories of our accomplishments past and present.

This is the premier issue of “Supply Lines”, International Hope Canada’s print newsletter.

IHC was officially founded in 2001 by two nurses, Phyllis R and Sonia M. Phyllis, an operating room nurse at St Boniface Hospital, had participated in international medical missions to some of the most impoverished countries. Sonia had been volunteering for several years in Malawi, Africa. Both nurses were aware of the pressing need for medical supplies from Manitoba hospitals. Two churches, Holy Redeemer Roman Catholic Parish and Westminster United Church have provided on-going support for the work of IHC.

IHC has grown exponentially since its inception, expanding locally, nationally and internationally. We at IHC would like to share with you the many exciting projects IHC has undertaken and highlight the work of our cadre of very committed volunteers. We hope that you will find it interesting and informative. Any suggestions for future newsletters would be greatly appreciated.
