I highly appreciate Abdul and all the staff of Burnaby Neighborhood House for their support, time and consideration.
In fact being a volunteer at BNH is one of my most precious experience and I would like to express my sincere gratitude for giving me an opportunity to be a member of BNH team as a volunteer.

I am from Uzbekistan, Central Asia. It has been a pleasure to work with the Burnaby Neighbourhood House and get the first Canadian experience. It helped me to get an official job in Winners Store at Metrotown. I am ready to participate in volunteer initiatives of BNH office and I will definitely want to be in the volunteering list.

I have been volunteering in BHN for almost 2 years as an ESL teacher. Abdul gave me the opportunity to develop my career and improve my skills. The team working at BHN is just awesome! They believed in me and had treated me like family all this time. It has been an honour to be a part of my community.

Keep the hard work and keep being amazing! and thank you Abdul and Zelly for all your love and care!

Thank you for the opportunity given to me to work as Farsi Interpreter. It was a great experience. It would be a pleasure for me if I could participate in other events too.
