Our partners at Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation are making incredible progress in their mission to create an inclusive and accessible camp environment where every child has the opportunity to experience camp. We look forward to continuing our partnership with their Exceptionality Program in order to give children and youth living with disabilities the opportunity and support they need to experience camp.
Your gift today creates opportunities for children living with disabilities here in Canada to experience camp in a safe environment.

Thank you to those who have already generously donated to Ryan’s Rays on this #givingtuesdaynow – a global day of giving and unity created to support communities and nonprofits around the world that have been impacted by COVID-19.
Just a reminder that every dollar donated today at http://ryansrays.org/donate has double the impact thanks to a donation match by a group of generous donors! Please help us make the most of this opportunity by donating today.
It is hard to believe that this picture was taken just 3 months ago as we celebrated the opening of our first inclusive education classroom in Guatemala at Hope of Life International. It seems so much has changed in our world since then. Schools have been closed since mid-March in Guatemala, following the country’s first confirmed case of COVID-19 on March 13th.
These children, however, are being well looked after by the staff at Hope of Life, many of whom have decided to be separated from their own families during this Quarantine in order to serve the vulnerable in Hope of Life’s care. We thank you for the selfless ways you are showing love to the most vulnerable both at the Hope of Life campus and in the many surrounding communities of Guatemala during such unprecedented times.
Your gift today helps us continue our work in Guatemala.

Today we celebrate #givingtuesdaynow – a global day of giving and unity!
For today only, every dollar donated at http://ryansrays.org/donate has double the impact thanks to a donation match by a group of generous donors!
In Ethiopia, like in Canada, schools have been closed since March 16th, including the Child Development Unit at Horizons Academy. Thanks to the funding that Ryan’s Rays has provided, teachers’ salaries are still being paid so staff can care for themselves and their families. The staff in Ethiopia are working hard to provide support to families amid inflation and food scarcity. Child sponsorships continue to help meet the needs of these children and we thank those of you who continue to support these children in this way!
We thank the staff of Christian Horizons Ethiopia for their work of providing for their students and communities and pray Covid-19 does not take hold in the communities they serve!
Your donation today helps us continue our work in Ethiopia.
