Strengthening Community One Easter Egg at a Time
Though it was a cold, blustery day in spring, more than 160 residents of Applewood community in south-east Calgary showed up for the Easter egg hunt Syeda Zehra had organized.
It was so chilly, Syeda had decided to leave her toddler at home, but she was absolutely thrilled by the turnout.
"The main reason I do this is to build good relationships, like a family," says Syeda. "If you have good relationships in a community, the community will be safer."
