Rev. Wendy McNiven with worship associate Oliver Belisle – Child Haven International’s main purpose is to provide the necessities of life to otherwise destitute children, through its eight homes in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Tibet, operating with Gandhian principles. The creation of Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino, Rev. McNiven tells of her own experience at one Child Have home.
She will offer reflections about how Child Haven International contributes to the building of strong, caring communities — and what we might learn from it.
Rev. McNiven is a retired Unitarian minister. She and her spouse live in Courtenay and grandparent in Victoria.
