Volunteer of the Month
Every year, CIWA volunteers tirelessly provide thousands of hours of support for immigrant women and their families in Calgary. Without their support and contribution, CIWA would not be able to run the day to day activities of the organization.
CIWA recognizes the hard work and outstanding efforts that our volunteers contribute every day to our programs and services through our Volunteer of the Month Initiative.
We would like to congratulate Saliha Hadjeras for being April's Volunteer of the Month!
