In honor of World Refugee Day on June 20, 2017, we’d like to share an art piece created from a 16 year old female’s passion for learning more about the experience of a refugee.
Below are the words of this artist explaining what inspired this beautiful piece of work:
“The refugee crisis is the story of our time. How we are dealing with it is defining who we are. I can’t not deal with it in my work. To create is to be curious, engaged, awake, and in earnest dialogue with the unknown. And truly, it is through dance that I have the best hope of honoring a subject I care so deeply about” –Crystal Pite

Working with Syrian Refugee Families
Cameray Child and Family Services has had the privilege to collaborate with the New Westminster School District and New Westminster Child and Youth Mental Health to create a program for working with refugee families from Syria. This was all made possible because United Way of Lower Mainland has dedicated funding for helping Syrian refugee families settle in the Lower Mainland. Through this funding our organizations were able to put together a training led by Dr. Sarina Kot for over 50 New Westminster school staff and service providers to learn how to recognize settlement issues versus symptoms of trauma.
