"I can't believe there was such a support in Canada, something I was very blessed to get. I have no family or friends here, all I had was logging into the program at those difficult times when there was a lockdown. The facilitators made me feel so special, the professional Dietitian, Social Worker and Prenatal Support Worker answered all my concerns. I really felt that Majeda, was another mother any time I call her she responds to my messages. The vouchers were another great support at the time we were new in the country and helped me in purchasing healthy food. Thanks for the ones behind the program that help families to get a great start and make them feel welcome in a new country and environment. BridgeWay is a great organization."

We gratefully acknowledge the government of Canada's #HealthyCommunities Initiative for funding Arabic Healthy Start.
