“I come from the Republic of Congo, where I saw terrible things in the war. I lived in fear until I was able to escape to Canada. I arrived in Ottawa and found my way to McPhail House, where I live now. Since living at McPhail I have obtained my citizenship, learned English, re-educated myself and secured employment. I am finally starting to heal.”
