Heidi and darlene - mt. Kilimanjaro
In September 2014, Heidi and Darlene climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for our Special Needs Orphans project. They got sponsors from all over the world to pledge money towards their fundraiser. They had a flag made with the names of all of their sponsors and when they reached the top, they spread out the flag to honor them.
Heidi and Darlene raised $19,000 for special needs orphans! Their donation helped us complete a campaign to provide a new home for the special needs children, as well as covered 4 months of nutritious foods, special education, physical therapy, and speech therapy for the children at ISRC.
In June, 2016, the flag arrived in Kolkata, India where it is now displayed at ISRC's new building.
