Humanitarian Easter

Owners and staff at Snow Peas Taste of Asia prepared house specialties during their Easter Sunday tea party at the restaurant located downtown in Georgia Quay. All the tasty treats were free as patrons donated money to Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam, which provides food, shelter, education and medical help to orphans. One young supporter (above) was Rowan Gruger-Cowper, age 7, who has her picture taken with a sign that will be forwarded to Western Union which, in turn, donates $10 to the cause for every photo. - Paul Rudan/The Mirror
