“I’m deeply grateful….”

Volunteers bring skill, creativity, and freshness to the welcome of refugee claimants.  And they leave inspired and enriched.

What a delight to have Anna Kvasnikova at Kinbrace!

From February to April, Anna volunteered two days a week through the University of British Columbia’s Arts Internship Program.

She reflects on her role and time:

“My role at Kinbrace was wonderfully diverse. I helped mothers with childcare, completed paperwork, conducted tax workshops, prepared community dinners, attended multi-agency meetings, and simply connected with anyone who visited.

My experience at Kinbrace was overwhelmingly heartwarming and inspiring.

I’m deeply grateful for the generosity and open-heartedness of staff, residents, and volunteers, who made me feel welcome and gave me a unique insight into a special world.”
