Dr Maysoon Salama is the manager of the An-Nur Early Childhood Centre in Wigram.

Her husband was badly injured, and her son Atta Elayyan killed, in the attack on Christchurch's Al Noor Mosque on 15th March 2019.

Originally from Palestine, she trained as a food scientist and now operates two childcare centres, as well as being the National Coordinator for the Islamic Women's Council of New Zealand.

Approaching the first anniversary of the attack, she reflects on how far we've come, and the changes still needed to create an inclusive and safe society for all New Zealanders.
