Isa Mundo Madres!

Since 2006, we have committed in taking our time to acknowledge the support of all our volunteers and supporters in completing our various projects. Our friends, colleagues, families, businesses, and other non profit organizations have all been integral in progressing the work of Isa Mundo - without them, we will not be where we are today.

This month, we wanted to say a special thank you to the 'Madres' of Isa Mundo. These are mothers who continually donate used baby and children's clothes, toys and books to the Foundation. They are aware of the work we do in orphanages and children centred facilities in developing countries and these Madres have found ways to support our work despite their busy parenting schedules and responsibilities. These newborn and children's clothes/toys will be put to good use and are appreciated by all organizations we partner with.

We are grateful for the time our Madres are taking to sort, store and clean these clothes and toys - and we know that all less fortunate babies and children who receive them are forever grateful too. Yay for all the Madres of the world!

UPDATE - IMEC in Bambang, Philippines

After months of research and negotiating how to purchase supplies to expand the Isa Mundo Education Centre (IMEC) in Bambang, we have decided to purchase 3 additional desktops computers, projector screen and additional school supplies in Vancouver, BC with the help of our new friends at Staples Store #254.

We will be sending these tech supplies in two boxes via freight this month and should arrive in the Philippines by August. We hope that this will further improve the IMEC in Bambang which is our Foundation's first completed education centre project. Since 2009, the IMEC in Bambang has proven to improve students' grades by accessing world wide web educational resources and on-line information.
