We are celebrating that Khuloud and Sahel, who were part of our very first group of students back in Spring of 2018, have just passed their interview for permanent settlement in Canada.
They might get there in just 6 weeks after years of waiting. There are a few more things for them to sort out but it looks like all systems are go for Khuloud and family! We are so delighted for them! Khuloud, Sahel and their 2 young daughters have been in Ghana since the start of the Syrian conflict.
Sahel is a talented graphic artist and Khuloud is a journalist. Sahel was interrogated at the start of the conflict, after which the family went to Ghana to visit relatives and give themselves some time away from the problems. Thinking that things would quieten down, they received news while away that their house had been ransacked and that it wasn’t safe for the family to return.
They have been waiting for the chance to continue their lives in peace and safety, and to provide their daughters with a future of hope, joy, and opportunities. We wish them all the best and admire their resilience. We know they will thrive in Canada.
