Report Ottawa luncheon with Baroness Caroline Cox

Baroness Caroline Cox, a member of the British House of Lords and a fearless internationally acclaimed humanitarian, spoke at a luncheon sponsored by ARDFC on 23 September 2017 in Ottawa.

Her excellent presentation focused on her daring humanitarian work in areas few dare to enter. The 75-80 in attendance were entertained by her tales of adventure, inspired by her passion for helping "the least of these", moved by the shocking needs in our world, and galvanized to join her "On Mission".  About $10,000 was raised in a free-will offering for ARDFC's project in Cameroon, building a self-sustaining medical clinic offering affordable healthcare.  (See project information here)

While in Ottawa Baroness Cox spoke at a local Anglican Sunday service, met with a good number of MPs, and also spoke to a gathering of 45 - mostly foreign diplomats.  Her focus with the politicians and diplomats was to bring attention to pressing global humanitarian needs and the threat to religious freedom in many countries.

All in all, Baroness Cox's visit to Ottawa was extremely productive and a great encouragement.  We thank God for her and ask His continued blessing on her ministry and protection as she travels the world advocating for those who are oppressed, suffering and forgotten.
