MCA Mexico’s Canadian Angels Foundation directors and volunteers associated with providing support for Children and youth with disabilities will host an annual fundraiser to support charitable activities.
From 2012 to 2019, the C.A.S.A. Caring Abroad Society of Alberta has held a Fiesta dinner with both live and silent auction items to raise funds for children and youth with disabilities . In 2020, the Covid pandemic caused cancellations of many in-person events including the Fiesta dinner. As an alternative in November 2020, Friends of Casa Connor, who became MCA, held a matching donation campaign as well as an online silent auction to raise funds for children and youth with disabilities who live in Banderas Bay. Given the pandemic situation continued to be a concern, MCA focused on an online based event again in November/December 2021. The event again consisted of an online auction and matching donation campaign. We plan to run an in-person event in the fall of 2022. Please watch our website for further information for fall 2022.
- MCA will coordinate an event to help children and youth with disabilities in Banderas Bay to access therapy, education and nutrition services, as well as access health services, medicines and other essential needs. The event may change from in person to online depending on the health environment.
- Donation campaigns will assist in providing needed therapy equipment including equipment for the hydrotherapy.
- Donations will help ensure equipment maintenance and allow for expanding services, including increasing the number of children and offering respite services.
