Bela Ravi is one of the several immigrants who are making a difference in communities across Canada. She has been working tirelessly to introduce much-needed services by organizing fundraisers in her city. For Bela, who came to Canada from India in 1973, this is a way of giving back to Sudbury. “This is the place I live, this is where I raised my kids, what we have around us and what my girls have become is all about this city. So I want to give back to the community that has given me all this,” she says.
