Biniiam Woldegabir Raises Awareness and $5300 by Crowdfunding for His Birthday

February 20, 2018

Biniiam Woldegabir recently celebrated his 30th birthday with a gift of hope! He turned his milestone birthday into an opportunity and, with help from friends and family, raised $5,300 for MOSAIC.

Biniiam and his mother came to Canada as refugees when Biniiam was only three years old; his mother had fled the Eritrean War of Independence and gave birth to Biniiam in a refugee camp. Through support programs and other help, their family was able to rise above challenges to build successful lives in Canada.

Thank you Biniiam; your passion to help others and raise awareness for MOSAIC is an inspiration to us all, and your contribution will greatly support our work with refugees and other newcomers.

For over 40 years MOSAIC has been empowering immigrants and refugees to integrate successfully into Canadian society by delivering settlement services, English classes, employment services, and many other support services for seniors, families with young children, youth and LGBTQ newcomers and refugees.
