Winnipeg's Mondetta Charity Foundation has received a significant gift from the estate of Louise Charette, who was a CBC journalist.

Mondetta received $262,500, which will be used toward the construction of a new wing of a school in Kampala, Uganda.

Charette also bequethed $87,000 to the Uganda Orphan Fund.

Charette wrote a letter before she died in July 2012, which stated: "I left a substantial portion of my estate to the orphans in Africa because they have not had the advantages each one of us has."
