Dear Community Members and Friends, Raging fires have and are continuing to force thousands of residents from Fort McMurray and nearby communities to flee. It is now being considered the largest disaster in Canadian history. Many are now in temporary shelters here in Edmonton with nothing more than the little they could carry with them. This natural calamity has caused so much damage to their lives, not to mention their properties. So, we appeal to you to kindly to show your support by making a donation, whatever you can afford. Even a donation as small as $5 or $10 makes a difference. On Saturday May 14, noon to 6pm Africa Centre in collaboration with other community associations and organizations will hold a benefit to support those affected by the fires in the Wood Buffalo region. It will showcase the talents of several members of our communities. Please drop-by with family and friends and give generously.
