You Can Help Children Find a Place to Belong!

Today, you can change a life like mine.

My name is Oumar. My family arrived in Canada in 2003, just days before the United States invaded Iraq.

As a young newcomer to Canada, I didn’t belong. I didn’t speak the language, and I had no friends. I felt like an outsider.

But when I dropped in at a House of Friendship’s community centre, I finally found a place that felt like home.

Your support is vital to ensure that children like me get a chance to find connection and belonging. To reach their full potential. Will you take the time to help someone like me?

Yes! I believe all children have a right to belong, and I will support this important work!
