« ... trois réfugiées afghanes
à un spectacle de magicien
lors du pique-nique de SERY...

... Solidarité Ethnique Régionale de la Yamaska
est une organisation à l'origine bénévole,
fondée par des québecois de souche
et des immigrants de longue date comme moi,
qui a comme but d'aider les nouveaux arrivants
à s'intégrer à leur societé d'accueil... »

Illuci from Netherlands, Netherlands

I read in newspapers, books (khaled Hosseini wrote two Dutch novels about Afghanistan life nowadays) and in e-mails (a friend of mine is a military surgeon over there but is operating upon far more civilians than military), about the situation over there. It must be very weird for refugees to be in such a paradise like Canada on the one hand, and loving their home country on the other hand, feeling the misery and sorrow of their families and friends over there. Good picture, good job!!
