A WARM WELCOME FOR RAHAF
The Rossland Telegraph received this notice from the West Kootenay Friends of Refugees about the arrival of a new resident for our area:
The West Kootenay Friends of Refugees, and especially Melva and Ian Scott, were thrilled to welcome Rahaf Zwayne to Canada. The Scotts are privately sponsoring Rahaf who is originally from Syria and most recently Istanbul, Turkey.
The couple met Rahaf while they were travelling in Turkey and have been in almost daily contact with her via Skype ever since.
The WKFoR would like to thank all our donors, especially those who attended a concert in February held to assist the Scotts with this sponsorship. Rahaf will be a real asset to the group when the Abdin family arrives (soon, we hope), since she speaks perfect English as well as Arabic. We are all happy that she has arrived safely in Canada to start her new life here.
