Big and small hands were working together on Thursday packing a 40-foot shipping container with donated medical and school supplies bound for Mwanza, Tanzania

SaskTel began the We See You container project in 2006 with the aim of helping people in the poorest regions of Africa. Since then, the Crown corporation has partnered with various schools and organizations across the province to collect donations of items ranging from hospital beds and mosquito nets to clothing, school desks, hygiene products and hand-made teddy bears. This container is the fifth in a set of shipments sent to regions in Kenya, Mozambique and Uganda, as well as Arusha, Tanzania.
