Ottawa luncheon with Baroness Caroline Cox

Baroness Caroline Cox, a member of the British House of Lords and a fearless internationally acclaimed humanitarian, will speak at a luncheon sponsored by ARDFC. And you are invited!

Date: Saturday September 23, 2017, 12 noon (Luncheon)

Location: Metropolitan Bible Church, 2176 Prince of Wales Dr, Nepean (Ottawa), Ontario (www.metbiblechurch.ca)

Information: Email clenk@ardfc.ca

RSVP: Email RSVPOttawa@ardfc.ca
(RSVP deadline extended to September 17)

Cost: No charge. This event is sponsored by the Anglican Relief and Development Fund Canada (ARDFC). A freewill offering will be taken for ARDFC's Cameroon healthcare project.

We expect to be entertained by Baroness Cox' tales of adventure, inspired by her passion for helping "the least of these", moved by the needs in our world, and galvanized to join her "On Mission".

The event will also focus on ARDFC's new project – building a clinic to provide affordable healthcare in Cameroon (West Africa) in partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Cameroon. (Learn more about this project)

We chose Ottawa for the event as it is our nation's capital and Canada's sesquicentennial. In Ottawa, we are able to leverage her visit, reaching diplomats, politicians and key influencers with the powerful message of Christian caring she brings and the humanitarian passion she embodies. So, while in Ottawa, Baroness Cox will be meeting with a number of ambassadors and diplomats as well as with select Canadian Members of Parliament to discuss pressing humanitarian needs and religious freedom around the world.
