Donations in Zdy's Memory


Zdy was one of a kind. Hard-working, big-hearted and his love of life was legendary.

He will be greatly missed by so many

Canadian Connections is deeply grateful to Zdy and his cherished wife, Leslie for this opportunity to accept donations in Zdy’s memory. 

Zdy was a person who stood out. A listener who took everything in, he absorbed and, although he was not verbose whatsoever, whenever he spoke, everyone listened. He was a man without an ego and exceptionally modest. He would wear clothes from decades ago simply because they were comfortable. He emigrated from Germany as a child wherein he lived in a deportation camp and knew what it was like to start with nothing. He was a self made man who did not forget his roots and wanted to help others in return. 

Canadian Connections is dedicated to providing low barrier support to newcomers. Your donations will go directly to improving the lives of refugees beginning a new life in Toronto and help lift them out of poverty.
