Valentine’s Rose: Touched a Vietnamese Single Mother’s Heart

On Valentine’s  Day, I sent a rose to each of my students.

Dua Le broke into her tears. She told me it’s the first time she got a rose. Dua Le is a single mother with five children, the youngest one is disabled. She married her husband and came to Canada ten years ago. She gave birth to five children and got sick at the birth of the last child. Eventually her husband left her.

However, she found warmth, comfort and love in our LINC class. She wants to learn English and find a job. She wishes she can raise her kids better because they speak English better. In spite of all the difficulties, she still tries her best to come to school as often as possible and studies very seriously and happily.

This is how our LINC program affects the new comers’ life. We are here to help the new comers settle down well in Canada. It’s our mission: walking together with new comers.
