Thanks / acknowledgement
The Sudanese Canadian Community of London, Ontario and Area would like to express its greatest thanks and gratitute to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for the generous grant it had received in April, 2008. Such grant helped tremendously in refurnishing the community center following the devestating fire of November, 2007. It did equally help funding the community's various social, athletic and educational activities and events. And therefore the Sudanese Canadian Community in London regained its position as a strong and vibrant one.
