During the month between April 25 and May 25, the Sikh Community of Oliver organized a Ladies Fundraising Tea, shared information at the temple about the devastation of homes and the need for tarpaulins and basic food supplies ( bags of rice) and organized several volunteers to participate in door-to-door canvassing in Oliver, Keremeos, Cawston and Osoyoos.
As a result of their efforts, $17 000 was raised and handed over to World Neighbours Canada to send to TSS to help with immediate survival needs.
The directors at WNC extend a huge thank you to all those who participated in any way with the fundraising work. The willingness to devote time to activities that will support the people of Ramechhap is greatly appreciated!
