Remembering Helen Mo

Dearest Family and Friends,

Our beloved Helen Mo passed away on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. She died in her sleep during the early morning hours. It was unexpected, but peaceful and painless. She was 33 years old. She was full of happiness and delight in her final days, and most importantly, Helen knew that she was deeply loved and respected by all of us.

McMaster Lecturer and Friend of the CSSR almost at fundraising goal to build new school for children in Tipling, Nepal

Dear Friends,

I want to raise money to pay for the construction of a new school in the village of Tipling, in Nepal. This past summer, I spent five weeks volunteering in Nepal, both in the city of Kathmandu and in remote mountain villages. I was able to see first-hand the damage that was caused by the recent earthquakes, and I was fortunate to meet some of the amazing people who are working tirelessly to rebuild the country's damaged infrastructure.

MUN professor leads refugee-sponsorship effort

Memorial University professor Patricia Dold is rallying people to help privately sponsor a Syrian refugee family to come to Newfoundland and Labrador.

As a private citizen following the European refugee crisis, Dold initially didn't know what she could do to help.

When she realized private co-sponsorship was an option, she decided to do something about it, and quickly put a call out on Facebook.

In Memoriam - CSSR Member Moshe Amon

I am writing to email contacts of my friend, Moshe Amon, to inform them of his death at home on November 5. Attached is a copy of the obituary notice to be run in the Vancouver Sun. There is one more article to go up on his website www.mosheamon.com as soon as I can finish proofreading. It is intended to keep the site alive for a couple of years, partly in the hope that there may be commenters to fill in more details of Moshe's eventful life.
