Sacred Heart Supporting Charities
Sacred Heart School students actively participate in supporting charities. Sacred Heart School has supported the Terry Fox Foundation, Holy Childhood Association and the Northern Uganda Development Fund (NUDF).
In June 2008, Sacred Heart School donated $525.00 to the NUDF. The NUDF is based in Prince George, BC and Kamdini Parish in Uganda. The purpose of NUDF is to improve the standard of living of the people by promoting locally sustainable clean and safe drinking water, farming practices as well as other areas of daily living. There was an NUDF trip to Uganda in July 2008. Sacred Heart School’s donation of $525.00 was used to repair a school well. There are presently 1600 students at the school and the well had been broken for quite a few years. The school and community were very grateful to have their well repaired. Below are some photos of the well and school children.
