The emergency room at Surrey Memorial Hospital is currently closed due to a flood that occurred Monday morning. The closure, which is expected to last for several more days, has many patients being redirected to nearby hospitals.

This closure will not affect our Surrey Mobile Assault Response Team (SMART), which provides 24-hour service to women and girls who have been sexually or physically assaulted. SMART will continue to provide 24-hour support and accompaniment to alternative hospitals.

Last Friday, November 16th marked Surrey Women's Centre's 20th anniversary. Over one hundred and fifty women and their children visited our centre to celebrate with us over coffee and cupcakes as we kicked off our anniversary year.

Our guests also recieved new clothing, thanks to a local business who generously donated brand-new pants, sweaters and jackets to us. We were thrilled to be able to provide so many women and children who are fleeing violence with the quality clothing they need as we enter into the cold winter months.
