How a Refugee Fleeing From the Taliban in Afghanistan Came to Buy an Iconic MORE THAN 70-Year-Old Hamilton Business
Do you remember what you were doing in the summer of 1995?
Sima Sakha was barely a teenager and living in northern Afghanistan. Originally born in Kabul, her parents didn’t see a future for their children in Afghanistan, especially for girls who were banned to get an education. So for a bright future and more opportunities, they put their lives in danger and crossed the border by waking many miles to get out of Afghanistan. Luckily they ended up in Canada the land of opportunity.
August 18th, 2022 we celebrated Bruno’s Grand Reopening with Media Conference at Bruno’s new location. The event was attended by dozens of past students dating back as far as the 1960s.
