The terrible story of a young Somalian man who was blinded by insurgents in his country, and who now is trying to support himself and his two younger sisters, was the topic of an article in the Littleton Independent on Dec. 17, 2015.
The horror of the story what happened to him in Somalia — and on Thanksgiving weekend when his mother was killed in a car crash and his sister’s back was broken — is offset by the kindness and caring of the people at the Spring International Language Center, who have set up a GoFundMe account to assist the family. LI3 Board member Connie Shoemaker, Director Emeritus of the Center, is quoted in the article.
