‘I don’t think anything speaks more to Canadian values than helping people live with hope, and dignity.’
Canadians all over the country put foot to pavement for poverty today.
In Edmonton, thousands gathered at the Alberta Legislature grounds for the World Partnership Walk. The goal was to raise an impressive $800,000 for the Aga Khan Foundation.
TheFoundation operates in 30 countries from Asia to Africa and works to end global poverty.
The money raised will go to education, health, food and economic programs to help impoverished people across the globe.
Sarah Hamilton is one of the organizers of the walk, and each year is impressed by how many come out to support the cause.
