ORG Nanaimo Syrian Family Fundraiser

Mar 15, 2016

Karma Yoga Fundraiser for a Syrian Refugee Family

Our Response Group hosted a Restorative & Yoga Nidra class with Kirtan chants
at OmTown Yoga in Nanaimo one night in February and want to thank the Kirtan 'ladies" who serenaded us in this Restorative class and all the yogis, yoginis and those who just wanted to try the experience of yoga while aiding our fundraising efforts. 
All proceeds will go directly toward the support of a Syrian refugee family here in Nanaimo. It is a privilege to be in the presence of such a wonderfully supportive community who are willing to help support a family of 6 for their first year. This includes day to day activities as well as financial and emotional support as they adapt to their new home.

May all children be well
