Our newest family of four took possession of their new Habitat for Humanity Home in Angus Sept. 29th.
...To prepare for the house-warming celebration, Maya Kovachev, who moved to Canada with her husband Georgi about seven years ago from Bulgaria, baked a fresh batch of egg bread. “It’s a tradition in our culture,” she said. “You make it for the first time you come to someone’s house.” The loaf, which is baked with honey and salt, is symbolic for the ups and downs life will bring their way. For now, all the family can think about is how much better life will be in their new setting, especially for their young twin daughters who now have a big backyard all to themselves. “It’s amazing, it’s more than we could dream for", she said.
