Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan


Congratulations to Deborah Ellis!

Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan is proud to congratulate Deborah Ellis on her recent appointment to the prestigious Order of Canada “for her acclaimed work as a young adult author and for her philanthropic support of many humanitarian causes.” One of our country’s highest civilian honours, the Order of Canada “recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.”

It is with deep sorrow that we share the loss of Cheryl Braganza, a remarkable artist and humanitarian, and longstanding member of CW4WAfghan. (Above: Cheryl with Dr. Lauryn Oates, as a member of our former Montreal Chapter some years ago.)
