About 3 years ago, we welcomed a refugee family from Syria to Napanee. Majad Hosni, Razan Alahmad and their four children happily settled into our community. Shortly after their arrival, some community members became aware that Razan’s sister Heba Sulaiman Alahmad was still living in Jordan and her well-being was at risk. A new group, “The Friends of Heba” was formed to advocate for Heba’s immigration to Canada and to support her refugee process.
It took almost 3 years, but the group was successful in making application for Heba’s refugee status. Our obligation, as a community refugee group, is to support Heba during her first year in our community (including financially). We are asking compassionate individuals and community groups to join with us in supporting Heba during her first year.
