The TBE Blog

On March 27, baby Hayat, a US citizen, was welcomed with great joy into the Aljelou family. Barbara Shapiro and Deb Gotbetter accompanied the mother, Rekanz, while the father, Ahmad, attended to their other three children.  And, thanks to modern technology, the baby’s grandmother could witness this arrival from Jordan.

The Syrian Refugee Resettlement Team is pleased to report that the families are progressing well. Donations of a car and driving lessons allow for greater flexibility and independence. One of the fathers has taken on several jobs. The children all seem to enjoy school or pre-school.  Because of many generous contributors, we have committed to sending age appropriate children to pre-school through June 2019.

TBE volunteers have been amazing! We are blessed to be part of a generous, giving community.
