Sabah from Damascus

Today is the first day of the World Humanitarian Summit. Refugees now entering Europe illegally are sent back to Turkey or worse, Syria, though this was not always the case. In January 2016, we met Sabah, an incredible mother who told us about the mishaps she went through with a smuggler to get into Turkey and across the Aegean Sea to Greece. She was traveling with 4 other young mothers and 16 children among all of them. Her 4 children are ages 10, 9, 6, and 5.

Sabah was a grade school teacher for 20 years in Damascus, Syria. Her dream is to continue teaching and nurturing future generations.
