“Khalil and Kholoud very graciously hosted an Open House last Sunday for the volunteers assisting them in settling into Calgary. They know that the people they have met so far represent a wider community of support and friendship and they wanted to express their gratitude to everyone, including the volunteers they have yet to meet.
A great deal has been accomplished over the past month to help the family feel welcome in Calgary. They, in turn, wanted to welcome us into their home for a celebration. There was much lively conversation despite the language challenges and we were presented with a vast array of wonderful, home-made Syrian food, along with their sincere thanks. We are equally grateful to be a part of their lives.”
