CNIS - African Market
Saturday, August 25th 2012
Noon – 6 pm
1985 West Broadway at Maple Street, Vancouver
Hosted by: The Canadian Network for International Surgery
Each year the Canadian Network for International Surgery holds an African Market in the covered courtyard outside our Kitsilano office, located at Maple and Broadway in Vancouver. The market is a free community event that attracts hundreds of people from the west side and the Lower Mainland.
This year, 25 African artisans, vendors, chefs and performers, representing more than a dozen African countries, as well as many NGOs working in Africa will participate. Children of all ages are encouraged to take part in our crafts and games. A silent auction will be held to raise funds for course material and surgical equipment.
We invite people to come and experience Africa- its beauty, diversity and some of its challenges – while supporting CNIS in our mission to teach life-saving surgical skills, enabling African practitioners to prevent suffering and the deaths of millions each year.
