Thank You

Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, and front line service providers who have helped the Niagara Migrant Workers Interest Group serve our migrant worker neighbours. To these neighbours we extend our utmost gratitude. Thank you for all your hard work and for being an integral part of the Niagara community for over 50 years. We also thank your families and loved ones back home who support you and sacrifice so much for your ability to participate in the farm worker program. We look forward to continuing to work together in 2018 to create a healthier community.
