CAiRN (Communities Assisting Refugees Now)

Sister Mary Corbett and I are actively involved in a refugee sponsorship group in Pictou, Nova Scotia. Our group is called CAiRN (Communities Assisting Refugees Now). Last Friday night we attended Hijab Day at the public library in New Glasgow. The event was interactive with opportunities for people to learn to write their name in Arabic; to hear Ima and Ilhem speak about the cultural and religious meanings of wearing the hijab, along with an opportunity to try it on; to have phrases of welcome translated onto cards to use when our newcomers arrive; and also access to information related to the two local groups sponsoring refugees, Safe Harbour and CAiRN. Over 50 people showed up and got involved in the activities. The spirit of welcome and excitement surrounding the event was contagious. We are planning to have a similar event in the town of Pictou soon.
