Monthly Dinner - Kalmo Refugee Fundraiser with Marwo Abdi

  • Greater Victoria Public Library 735 Broughton Street Victoria, BC, V8W 3H2 Canada (map)

Food With A Side of Community is a community dinner that takes place on the first Thursday of every month, in the downtown Greater Victoria Public Library (Community Room). We believe in the power of food and conversation to build relationships. Join us for our community gathering including dinner and featured guest speakers.

Marwo shares her journey raising funds to bring her family members to Canada through a private sponsorship arrangement. Currently, the 4 family members are UNHCR convention refugees residing at a refugee camp in Kampala, Uganda.

The event is free and open to everyone.

The event is organized by the Support Network for Indigenous Women & Women of Colour and the University of Victoria Womens Centre.
