Current Project: Welcoming of Syrian refugees

Kassim’s health has improved greatly since arriving in Canada. So has his optimism. He now participates in a social integration program at Haley Street Adult Services Centre. In the woodworking shop, he is part of a team of two working on the wood splitting machine, transforming wooden pallets to kindling. The kindling is sold in local stores, bringing in an income for the Centre and for himself. (Sydney Mines, NS)
