“Community Connect gives people space and a forum in which to reflect upon many of the problems which can affect modern family life. Through mutual support and practical advice, CC is encouraging people to work at developing their family life in a really positive direction.”-Fiona Forsyth "In a very short time, Community Connect Doha has become that rare community initiative that endeavors to regularly educate and hold interactive dialogues on a variety of life issues that often go ignored by the greater majority—but are of such vital importance. Its determined founders, Mariam and Kausar, bring in the top experts in the field to cut straight into the heart of important social issues, such as proactively dealing with depression, grief, a child with autism, and a host of other subjects, leaving the community attendees better informed, better equipped, and with more understanding that life is more than just about a single ‘normal’ trajectory… and that we can handle it!"- Sabika Shaban
