Sisters Help at AIDS Vancouver's Celebrity Dim Sum

Sr. Merry Q. Contrary and N.Sr. Sweet Cheribum where honoured to assist with AIDS Vancouver's Celebrity Dim Sum fundraiser supporting AIDS Vancouver's Asian Community Outreach Program. Approximately 250 people turned out for the event and raised over $12,000.

The Asian Community Outreach project is the only HIV and Harm Reduction program providing direct services to the Asian Community in the Lower Mainland. The BC Centre for Disease Control 2009 Annual Report notes that Asians and South Asians account for the third largest group who are being newly diagnosed with HIV in British Columbia. The importance of this program is clear and the Sisters are so happy to lend our support to this vital work.
