Event description

Description

Join us for an educational and inspiring evening at this year’s Annual Refugee Fundraiser organized by the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine Aesculpian Society and Global Health Committee.

The fundraiser is in support of the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO). As we are so privileged to receive medical education here in Canada, we are looking to give back and advocate on behalf of our community, together and united as a student body. The fundraising event is proud to welcome inter-disciplinary minds speaking towards the impact of immigrant and refugee integration and inclusion in Canada. Our speakers will focus on the importance of photo journalism, legal consideration of rights, as well as the allocation of fair and accessible health care services to refugees that immigrate to Canada. There will also be speakers sharing their personal stories and exciting performances, such as modern African style dance performance!

Dinner will be a three course meal served by Lagos Bar & Grill. All funds raised will go directly to OCISO initiatives helping refugees from around the world. In an effort to raise as much money as possible for the OCISO, we will also be hosting a raffle and art auction as well, with work donated by journalists, artists, and professionals during their field work. A schedule and list of speakers will be released closer to the event date.

Price: Tickets are $38/ticket for students and $45/ticket for the general public.

If you have any questions please contact: Vice President Global Health at vpglobalhealth.aesc@uottawa.ca.
