Find Azer Kids Now fundraiser
A fundraiser this Saturday is being organized to support the Find Azer Kids Now campaign.
Comox Valley moms have donated more than 1,000 pieces of children’s clothing (sizes 0 – 7), cloth diapers, shoes, boots, bed linens, toys, games, puzzles, books and videos.
Weather and space permitting, items of a more general nature will also be available.
The sale is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1856 Mallard Dr. in Courtenay.
In August, Azer received confirmation her ex-husband — Dr. Saren Azer — hadn’t returned to Canada from a court-approved trip to Europe with her children.
On Aug. 24, Comox Valley RCMP sought and obtained a Canada Wide Warrant of Arrest for Azer — who practiced at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox — in relation to charges of Abduction in Contravention of a Custody Order, contrary to Section 282 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
