It was definitely cold outside, but it was a warm inside as we gathered to focus on the DR Congo. We started by greeting both old and new friends and some amazing desserts from WOW Factor Desserts (highly recommended) . We also had the opportunity to bid on a select set of silent auction items.

We then viewed the film War Witch (Rebelle) on the topic of child soldiers.

After the film, Kenzo and Lau spoke about the film and their own story in the DR Congo and how they are focused on making a difference one life at a time. It was a moving night and many were moved to make generous donations. This was our first event in Edmonton but not our last.
