Oliver Sikh Temple fundraising for Nepal

During the month between April 25 and May 25, the Sikh Community of Oliver organized a Ladies Fundraising IMG_9735Tea, 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 fuIMG_9803ndraising work. The willingness to devote time to activities that will support the people of Ramechhap is greatly appreciated!
