MOSAIC was selected by 100 Women Who Care Vancouver as the charity to receive a donation of $7,000 at Steamworks Brew Pub in Gastown on November 14th. Their members were moved to hear about the many challenges refugees face when transitioning to life in Canada. 100WomenVan’s donation will support Syrian refugees living in Surrey, specifically helping women and children succeed in their new community by providing many essential settlement services including language and cultural training.
