We are so very saddened by the tragic situation in London, ON that directly targeted a Muslim family because of their faith. As an organization that directly supports the well-being and safety of our community, we cannot fathom the significant grief, anger, sadness and fear this young child will go through as the remaining family member, as well as the broader Muslim community and its allies. We stand with you and firmly denounce the Islamophobia that was at the root of this situation. For any Muslim youth who are struggling right now, DCAFS is here to support you. You can book an appointment online at dcafs.on.ca or give us a call at 519-941-1530. The Naseeha Helpline, a Muslim specific mental health support service, is also available seven days a week from 12 PM to 12 AM (EST).
