From the Community

“KOSD supported me throughout COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic was a scary moment in my life. My family was fill with worries and fears during lockdown. We know that we have to keep our family safe. But how??? KOSD did not leave us behind. They provided food and PPE supplies at our door which we really need at that period of time. We felt relief from the anxiety and fear.”

“Being in this country without the ability to read and write English is very challenging. However, through KOSD my worries and stress is slowly being lifted off my chest. They assisted me and my family’s Welfare application every time I needed help and for that I am truly grateful.”

“KOSD helps my family with papers, with school, and others. Since I am a student, KOSD help me join FG youth group which I love being there because I make new friends, learning and also have fun.”
