A new community group has formed on the Peninsula in support of grandmothers in Africa.
The South Surrey Soul Sisters are now one of 22 “grandmother groups” under the Greater Van Gogos umbrella, in support of African grandmothers and the estimated 14 million children they help raise and support.
For anyone interested in getting involved in the new group, an information session is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 17, 2 p.m. at Whitecliff Retirement Residence, 15501 16 Ave.
“Having been inspired by the courage of grandmothers in Africa for several years, I felt encouraged to start a grandmothers group in my own neighbourhood,” said Clare Martin, co-ordinator of the Soul Sisters.
