Somalia Famine Relief  Fundraiser Picnic

In the news lately is the famine in Somalia and the surrounding countries in the horn of Africa. We watch in horror and read with great sadness in our hearts as the situation worsen.

Some of us are keen and have done something about it, others want to, but do not know how or where to do anything about it.

Edo friends of BC have decided to do something about it with your support. We have joined with the Canadian Red Cross to raise money for the relief effort. Every donation at this picnic event will be matched by the Canadian Government and any donation $20 and over is tax deductible.

You are cordially invited to a Fundraiser Picnic in Surrey BC. There will be free BBQ, water and soft drinks for your refreshments. Please join us and help us make this fund raising event a success.

Global TV has expressed interest in covering the event. You just might be on TV.
