A 20-year-old Western University student has created a non-profit organization aimed at helping youth and adults locally and internationally. Penpals4Peace, which was founded in July 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, connects volunteers from around the world with students at Al-Shumookh School in Aden, Yemen to help them reach their academic potential.

The non-profit also runs a breakfast program, Food4Future, donates school supplies through their Supplies4Success program, and helps out locally in London, Ont., and Toronto, Ont. with monthly COVID care packages for the homeless.

Director and founder of Penpals4Peace, Noor Qureshi, joins Mike Stubbs to discuss.
