In lieu of sending traditional holiday cards, Manitoba Hydro International (MHI) donated to the Benin Orphanage Foundation for construction of a new facility in Benin, West Africa for over 60 children. The new orphanage is on a desirable parcel of land providing protection from flooding. The new orphanage will have electricity, running water, bunk beds, mosquito nets, cement walls, a tin roof, windows, doors, and a garden to grow vegetables. MHI is proud to be part of this worthwhile cause.
Additionally, MHI staff provided hampers which were distributed by MHI's staff in the Songo region of Mozambique.
