Speroway is a Canadian charity that was once known as Feed the Children – Canada. Speroway partners with other loving Canadians to care for the needs of children and their families, both in Canada and worldwide by providing food, medicine, education and other essentials with Christian love, compassion and integrity.
Speroway (pronounced spare-o-way) is a very unique name that is derived from two different meanings. Spero is a Latin word which means hope. Whereas as way represents the path we follow.
Speroway is currently running a giveaway in hopes to get people to take notice of their ongoing efforts, name change and to try to help raise money for Haiti. The grand prize includes:
Speroway is committed to delivering hope to children and families in need. Their programs are a reflection of their ongoing support and care for those less fortunate.
“Look into the face of a hungry child and you’ll see a child with real hopes, real fears, and a very real need to eat. From areas devastated by natural disasters to countries caught in the grip of poverty, countless hungry children need help!”
“Reach into the life of a child through our child sponsorship program and become a “Child Champion”. You can impact a child’s life forever. Every child deserves basic necessities like food, medical care, and education. Changing a child’s future – can you think of anything more important?”
“We seek your continued support for our medical teams. This program provides medicines and vitamins in its mobile clinics, along with food and other supplies. Assistance is also required in shipping containers of food, medicines and other life-saving essentials to overseas locations.”
“High unemployment rates and an extremely high cost of living results in First Nations communities in Northern Canada living in poverty. This can be unreasonably difficult for First Nation children who simply want to have a good meal everyday.”
“A baby’s feverish eyes show the suffering. Ragged breath points to pneumonia, tuberculosis or worse. The agony of slow starvation is heartbreaking, and every day babies like this are orphaned or abandoned in Kenya. They are innocent victims and their needs are urgent!”
“We gather food from over 110 procurement partners and other generous groups and put together a 25+ pound box of food – enough to provide a child a meal a day for 7 days. Food drops are a tangible way to put our mission into action and to provide a helping hand to people in communities across Canada.”
“You can make a difference for hungry children by organizing a Special Project Fundraiser. These projects are a fun and fulfilling way to take a stand against hunger with Speroway.”
