Founder Nominated for Amazing People Ottawa

Our Founder and Executive Director, Ibrahim Musa, was humbled to have been nominated for Amazing People Ottawa!

We would like to thank our partners and donors, especially Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) for its continued support of our organization.

A refugee from Iraq, Ibrahim has lived in Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) since 2012. In 2016, Ibrahim, then 17, founded the Cuts for Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides free haircuts to children in Ottawa. Cuts for Kids has hosted events in five different communities, one of which included haircuts for 250 Syrian refugees. In the past year, Cuts for Kids has grown to a staff of nine, has mobilized over 60 volunteers and partnered up with over 30 organizations in the Ottawa area.
