Ella interviews Lenny (name changed) a Filipino mom and caregiver.

Host, Maria Eunice speaks with Youth Worker Maria Espina and Ben, Coordinator of Newcomer Family Programs at The 519, about the barriers and challenges that Filipino youth encounter when they move to Canada and are reunited with their mothers/families.
