In this issue, you can find MANSO Regional Coordinator, Don Boddy, and his article “TRACKING NEWCOMER STORIES IN THE DAYS OF THE PANDEMIC IN MANITOBA” on page 69-71. Below is a short excerpt from the article that Don wrote:
In my role as Regional Coordinator with MANSO (Manitoba Association of Newcomer Serving Organizations), I supportorganizations that provide settlement services to newcomers in Manitoba. These organizations assist with settlement services (housing, community connections, important documents, employment, etc.), provide official language training, support refugees in their resettlement, and guide their cities, towns and villages towards being welcoming and inclusive. Because I do not work directly with clients, I watch from a distance and I have the sacred honour of being a listener and collector of stories.
