During these unprecedented times of Coronavirus, GSBC (Gujarati Society of British
Columbia) expresses its deepest gratitude and appreciation to the healthcare
workers of BC. They are the true frontline warriors fighting the novel coronavirus,
putting lives of themselves and their families, at risk. GSBC salutes them all.
GSBC is a not-for-profit organisation, established in the year 1969. GSBC was built
upon the aim of creating a sense of community for both Gujaratis located within BC
as well as newcomers to Canada. However, all are welcome to GSBC to join as
members or even to participate in their events regardless of their orientation. GSBC
celebrates various cultural events like Navaratri, Diwali, Holi, Events for seniors, etc.
GSBC is a large community in BC and it believes in cooperating with other
organizations across BC to provide support for charitable causes in these
unprecedented tough times.
On 29 th May 2020, GSBC provided 600 healthy vegetarian hot meals about (450 in
the morning 150 in the evening) to the healthcare workers at Surrey Memorial
Hospital in association with BAPS Charities, and Shri Laxminarayan Temple who
provided logistics and volunteering support for this healthy meal plan.
No words, or actions are enough to convey how grateful we are for the brave and
selfless service provided by these frontline warriors at our hospitals. This action from
GSBC is a token of expressing our gratitude. We appreciate tremendous support
from members of BAPS Charities, Shri Laxminarayan Temple and GSBC.
