A Message from the Editor-in-Chief of Al-Mohajer Newspaper
To our distinguished advertisers and readers, 

With businesses opening up again, we’re going back to work. Our children are back to school under the appropriately placed health measures and safety precautions that the Greater Essex County District School Board has taken upon themselves to administer. With the challenges that reveal themselves with something as significant as a global pandemic come necessary adjustments to everyday life that we need to adhere to, to be able to adapt to our new normal and fight on hand-in-hand, metaphorically speaking, as a collective community. We are pleased, and more determined than ever, to continue serving our community in Windsor and Essex County and neighbouring areas with the same business-minded, cultural, and intellectually driven media that we can possibly offer. We look forward to continuing our work and playing our part in our community. 

We want to remind our readers that it is more important than ever to be mindful and adhere to the safety and health measures administered by our governments and medical professionals that are put in place to stop and minimize the spread of COVID-19. As always, if you have any inquiries, please contact Reda at (519) 258-9690 or (519) 996-1771 or email us at almohajer@hotmail.ca. 

We want to thank all of our readers and advertisers for the continued support. As always, we cherish your engagement and partnership and use that support to propel us to greater heights.
