Spring has flown by with lots of activity on the Syrian Refugee project...
Our first family has settled comfortably into their permanent residence with the three older boys enjoying school and the two younger girls often playing at the park while their mom, Sabah, has her in-house ESL classes. Zuhir (the father) is doing well at his ESL classes - he will attend extra sessions over the summer.
Meanwhile, we are seeking temporary housing for our second family. Mohammad and Nadeen, and their two toddlers - daughter Seda (2 1/2) and son Khaled (1 1/2), are expected to arrive from Jordan in the next two to twelve weeks. If you know of temporary space for rent or are able to open up your home for a period of anywhere from two to eight weeks, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We continue to be amazed at the commitment, generosity, and kindness of all involved in our work to create a safe and welcoming community for Syrian newcomers.
