Greetings from the Canadian Marthoma Church Youth Fellowship! Last night, we hosted our first ever virtual fundraiser. This year, our goal was to raise $5,000 for COVID relief in India through the Canadian Red Cross. Because of your generous donation, we were able to exceed our goal. This would not have been possible without each of your help. We thank everyone who made time to tune into our livestream. Remember that the donation portal will continue to be open till Tuesday, July the 20th, so if you have not had a chance to donate yet, you can do so by going to our donation portal at bit.ly/donate-for-india. Cash and cheques are also accepted by our youth secretary. By donating, you are automatically eligible to win our raffle basket which will be gifted to one lucky winner. God bless us all.
