MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA -  About 200 leaders with roots in countries around the world gathered recently at the World Vision's headquarters to discuss how ethnic communities in Canada are uniquely poised to bring about positive global change.  The event was hosted by the World Vision Multicultural Council, a group of 12 ambassadors that work with diaspora communities here in Canada to help children and families around the world.

Prominent community members with ties to countries like the Philippines, India, China, Armenia and Egypt were present to hear about how World Vision is working in their countries of heritage to bring lasting change for children, and how they can be involved with having an even bigger impact.

Quotes:
"Guests and participants at the event were passionate about supporting endeavors to help children around the world. I am honored to be part of this initiative, and to support World Vision in this wonderful project and the great causes they advocate for."
-Dr. Doaa Mohsen, World Vision Multicultural Council Ambassador  

"World Vision is a partner, and always seeking opportunities for long-term engagement in areas where we can make a real difference.  Our multicultural ambassadors, and the Canadians they connect with, provide feedback on strategic policies, programs and initiatives. They bring to the table a perspective only they can provide.  In return, we offer the chance to stay closely connected to development work in countries for which they care deeply. Together we play an active and critical role in caring for the world's most vulnerable children, through partnership."
- Lara Dewar, Chief Marketing and Development Officer, World Vision Canada

"It's important to have events like this, to bring all the different cultures that we can together. We are a multicultural nation so it's important to get connected with all groups that we can, particularly to ensure we can help the next generation."
-Joe Daniel, Vice-Chair, World Vision Multicultural Council
