A Visitor from Ottawa
September 19, 2018
The Honorable Patricia Hajdu, Minister of Employment Workforce Development & Labour came to visit MHHS today.
She was greeted by the President of the Society, Mr. Tomas Avendano, Sr., VP Marilou Yodogawa and representatives of the new Board of Directors, Erlinda Cruz (Treasurer).
It was a regular day of operations, and the Minister had intended it to be that way, so as to meet with clients and staff of the Multicultural Helping House. The Minister stressed that her advocacy was on the Live in Caregivers, which constitute a good majority of the clientele of the MHHS. She has a good understanding of the plight of the caregivers in Canada and around the world, who sacrifice years of their lives away from loved ones, in their desire to give their children a better future. Board Members Marcela Reyes and Demetrio Avendano.
