Under shade trees and sunny skies Project Abraham celebrated summer at Earl Bales Park.
The Yazidis New Year was celebrated April 24th at the Royal Canadian Legion banquet hall in Richmond Hill.
The celebration was an event full of the joy of freedom. The Yazidi community and Project Abraham volunteers shared the abundance of food and laughter, and the continual dancing and music that filled the hall.
Project Abraham is successfully supporting the growing Yazidi community in the GTA and helping them adapt to living in Canada. With our growing network of committed volunteers, we are providing clothes and furniture, helping find jobs and housing, and working with the community to ensure their needs are being met.
Last evening, volunteers from Project Abraham, and members of the GTA Yazidi community, along with Wisam, his wife Shayma, and their 11-year old daughter Hima, welcomed Jumaah and Tuffaha on their arrival at Pearson International Airport. It was an emotional family reunion, and a wonderful testament to the dedicated volunteers of Project Abraham who worked tirelessly to make this happen.
