Eatery raises funds to aid Indians affected by COVID-19 surge

It can be difficult to think of others when your business is struggling amid COVID-19 restrictions. There is one Lethbridge eatery, however, that is doing what they can to help others abroad who are even worse off.

Immigrant families know first hand how difficult life can be abroad. Even amid tough restrictions that are affecting her business, Diana Le, owner of MAMA LA Vietnamese Cuisine says we must do what we can to help others. 

Her restaurant recently hosted Eating To Help Others,  a campaign that took proceeds from food sales to provide emergency COVID-19 relief to India – a country dealing with an overwhelming surge of cases, and lack of supplies and medical resources. The amount raised was then matched by the restaurant before it was donated to the Indian Red Cross Society.

In total, $5,000 was donated.
