About Our Auction

All proceeds from the online auction will go towards PIRS' Afghan Women Fund.

As Afghan refugees arrive in Vancouver, these families are having to leave their homes suddenly and rebuild their lives in a new country. Funds raised from this auction will help create more English language class spaces, delivering culturally appropriate mental health support, and accessible childcare in locations where newcomers will be oriented or housed. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for our Afghan Women Fund. Your generous donation will help women with young children get access to language programs, childcare, and a sense of community and belonging.
