"The Toronto Times in association with AHEPA and the Canadian forces representative Lt. Commander Albert Wong (with assistance from US marines who volunteered their time and skilled labour) has raised funds and built a girls' orphanage and a school for disabled kids (first such school in Afghanistan) in Kabul. Without the Canadian army none of these projects would be possible. There are 200,000 disabled kids in Afghanistan who still need help. Lt. Commander Wong and the Canadian forces received an award of excellence for their work from the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. "- Toronto Times November 13, 2006
