He came to the United States in 1998 from Maydeen, Syria in an attempt to find his family a home where they could escape the brutal massacres plaguing the streets of their country. “I wanted to stay in Syria, but I couldn’t’ raise a family with all the killings- it was a very bad and dangerous situation.”
He, his wife, her mother, and their six sons will see their perseverance pay off and their dream of a safe, permanent home realized when they gather with Habitat volunteers, sponsors, and staff to receive the keys to the front door.
