An opportunity for a lifetime

There are few things as rewarding as being able to work on getting Aws to Canada. It is as if you are watching someone shake their chains. As lovely and lively as Istanbul is, unfortunately Aws has reached his potential here. It is time for him to grow - for his benefit and ours. 

When I first started hanging out with Aws he explained about some of his issues, the last six years have been a mix of unemployment, underemployment, in and out of schooling and moving between cities. It has not been the productive time where this young man is able to steadily invest in his mind and skills. Regardless, Aws has risen above the issues to not only study at a Canadian-Syrian school, work for himself and to provide assistance to his elderly parents; he has gone beyond that to be a case worker to raise support and aid for at risk refugees. 

With a little more freedom and time, Aws now works at a shelter for particularly abused and affected refugees. Together we are working to provide work for some of these young people through A Clean Start. We are so appreciative of Aws' work and his leadership in the community. There truly are few as respected as Aws. 

We will be sad to see him leave, but happier to know that he is going. If you are interested in this opportunity for a lifetime, please contact us, follow the news and support Aws directly. 

Almost There

We are happy to announce that we have raised the money needed to move to Canada. Thanks to the generous donations, not only will Aws be able to work and study in Southern Ontario, he is bringing his whole family! what a blessing.
