The Brock University Faculty Association (BUFA) offers its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Brock student Yosif al-Hasnawi who was killed last week as a result of a shooting incident in Hamilton. The first-year Medical Sciences student was killed after trying to help someone who was being accosted on the street. This senseless shooting has left us in shock. Efforts are underway to honour Yosif’s memory by establishing a scholarship in his name and we will keep members informed of those efforts and of ways of contributing to the scholarship fund once established.
The Student Justice Centre is hosting a vigil on Friday, December 8, 2017 at 3pm, in the Pond Inlet, to remember and honour the life of Yosif Al Hasnawi.
Donations are now being collected to establish the Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Fund, which will be used to establish a scholarship in his name. Donations can be made online at brocku.ca/donate or by phone at 905-688-5550 ext. 4190.
