Happy to Help
Kindly, Let GCA know if there is anything that you may need help with. May it be simple grocery need or any other help that is required amid this COVID-19 state-of-emergency declaration. The OC Transpo is currently not asking for any cash fare with its Back Door boarding facility, however, there may be heavier groceries or other stuff that may not be suitable for you to purchase and bring home. If you have any such request or need help with anything else.
Kindly visit https://gcaottawa.ca/happy-to-help/ and submit your request. We will try our best to reach out to you and help you in any way we could. Do not forget to include your phone number with your request so that we may reach you if we need any more information or make necessary arrangements.
Most immigrant communities are faced with a challenge of assimilating into their new environment while preserving their own culture and traditions. People gather with others from similar cultural and religious backgrounds to share experiences of their new life in a foreign land, to maintain their traditions and seek comfort in times of homesickness. Our community was no exception – these were there the driving forces behind the creation of the Gujarati Cultural Association.
Over the past so many years, the GCA has changed in many ways, but one thing that has remained constant is the willingness of its members to dedicate their time and effort to keeping the community strong and vibrant. In all these years, members have helped out in whatever way they can – be it behind the scenes or in more publicly recognized roles. What is certain is that our association is only as strong as our members, and after all these years, we are still flourishing.
