Bee a honey for Congo

 

 

Join HandUp Congo, Rotarians for Bees and Wheen Bee Foundation for an interactive Virtual Meet Up this Mon, 23 May 2022 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM AEST

Your booking helps us raise funds to buy beekeeping equipment like gloves, bee suits and smokers for a village in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), located in the world’s second largest rainforest.
