Al-Awda's Refugee Support Committee is trying to identify members of our Arab and Palestinian community who reside in Salt Lake City Utah. We are looking for community members who may be able and willing to help a young Palestinian family with children, relocated a few days ago to Salt Lake City Utah from Al-Waleed refugee camp in Iraq on the border with Syria.
If you can help in this regard, please send contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Thanks!
To help in other ways, Al-Awda is asking all its activists, community members and supporters to contribute to help our sisters and brothers in their move to the U.S. Fifty one families have already arrived in the US, and Al-Awda has so far connected local communities with most of them. Many more, 1350 individuals in total, are expected to come to the U.S. soon. All the refugees, who are being relocated to the U.S. from Al-Waleed, arrive with essentially nothing.
