A Family From Africa – A Journey of Profound Child Loss, Hope, and Healing

It goes without saying that the death of a child is one of the most traumatizing, challenging, and painful experiences imaginable. The ensuing grief and suffering often serves to break families apart and leave an indelible absence within a community.

Joining us on this episode of the Lighthouse Beacon podcast is an African Canadian immigrated from Sierra Leone, a businessman, a community leader, and a bereaved father and husband. Edward intimately shares his, and his family’s journey through the death and grief of their young daughter. With a depth of vulnerability, explains how culture and immigration impacted their story of hope, and healing, and what transpired after they attended the Lighthouse Peer Supported Children’s Grief Support programming.

Join us for a deeply intimate podcast with an individual who can speak as a service recipient, and an invaluable member of our organization!
