Fundraiser to help Pedro, an injured Temporary Foreign Worker return home!
$10.00 door as donation
18 years of age and over please.
Pedro was working in Alberta when he suffered injuries at work that left him in hospital. The community has been assisting Pedro since December when his accommodations and food funds were stopped. We have funded Pedro’s stay and food but the funds are running dry. We can no longer support Pedro in Canada. However, Pedro has and will receive therapy until his return date. He has battled back and is healing. We are also working on written clarity for his continued support when he returns to Mexico.
Please join us and “Dance for Pedro!” there will be a $10 donation door cover. Also Cuban Sandwiches with a portion of every sale going towards Pedro. We will have lots of raffle items for support. You can support by buying a ticket in advance or by support with a raffle item.
Etown Salsa will be giving free Salsa lessons at 7:30. http://www.etownsalsa.com/ Thank-you Alex
Your support is needed, let’s come together and have a fun night!
Memoria Viva President
Pedro is a father of four from Mexico. He came to this country to support his family. He was seriously injured as a result of his work. He has not yet recovered.
Pedro’s employer is trying to send him back to Mexico where he likely will not get the treatment he needs and will no longer be able to support his family.
WCB who is responsible for Pedro’s expenses has completely stopped supporting Pedro financially.
We need all the help we can get. Funds will go directly to Pedro who at this point is not receiving any help to pay for his accommodations, food or for the aid who is currently helping him with the day to day necessities and to pay for the fee to renew Pedro’s visa to extend his stay to fully recover.
Thank you for your solidarity and for sharing with your friends and family.
