Canadian sailors brought smiles to children thousands of kilometres away.
As it is a custom that Canadian ships participate in outreach activities during port visits, 11 sailors, including the Commanding Officer of HMCS Winnipeg, Cdr Annick Fortin and Padre Dominic Lafrenière, presented a cheque to Juliana Sitepu, Coordinator of Kampung Kids, a children’s centre in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Sept. 2.
“The children laughed with us, they were proud to show us their skills, and they liked giving us high fives,” Lafrenière said.
