Refugees in our living room

Global Refuge began our "Refugee Night" series in order to share experiences with the local community and give a voice to refugees, both here and abroad. Hosted by Global Goods & Coffee Shop, our second event in the series focused on Syria. This past Friday evening, Deacon Elias, a Syrian Christian man from Northern Syria, shared what life was like before the war and what it is like now for those unable to leave the country and flee to safety. Thank you to Sami at Abe's Cafe for the wonderful food! Be sure to join us on October 8th as we spotlight South Sudan.
