We are excited to be part of GivingTuesday - a day when Canadians come together to celebrate giving back. CIWA provides much needed assistance to newcomers to Canada, to help them settle and integrate into their new country. Many of them are low-income families who require support and assistance, particularly during the holiday season. Consider supporting immigrant women and their families on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Your GivingTuesday donation will go towards supporting the well-being of immigrant women and their children in Calgary.
