What MDS Is Doing

In collaboration with the B.C. unit, we are rebuilding four new homes in the small community. Many volunteers of all skill levels will be needed for this project, which will run from May until fall. In addition to the traditional site in Monte Lake, there will be a small RV site located 70kms from Monte Lake. This site will run from mid-July through September. Contact MDS Canada for more information about the traditional and RV sites, or to sign up to serve.


Monte Lake is located about 50 kilometres from Kamloops in B.C.’s interior.
