Sanaa

Sanaa

When ISIS invaded our town, Tal Abyad – Al Rakka, we were too afraid to stay. They started arresting men and forcing them to join their groups. They started killing people right in front of our eyes and hung their heads in public. We haven’t seen this in our lives! Not even in movies. They also didn’t allow us to leave outside the town. One night, the neighbor’s home was invaded by ISIS and they arrested the men and killed them. At that moment we decided that we should leave as soon as possible. My mom took the lead and went to one of their offices and she created a story that one of my siblings was so sick and in need of urgent surgery, so we needed to go to Damascus. This is how we left our town. We remained two days in Damascus then we climbed the mountains until we arrived in Lebanon.

Now Sanaa, her husband Ahmad and their newborn are stuck in a tent near the border of Syria in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. With winter set, they listed a heater/stove, heating oil and food as their top neede. They also listed milk and diapers, mattresses, blankets, pillows and ground cover. The couple said they are anxious to return to Syria one day when it becomes safe again.

After the sudden death of our 2 year-old daughter, we were the recipients of unspeakable kindness and service. We have tried to give back to those grieving, struggling, and in perilous circumstances to try and repay the life-saving service offered to us. We reside in beautiful Park City, UT and love running, hiking, and biking the endless mountain trails that our town has to offer. We also love skiing, travel, reading, and shopping. Vic is an immigration attorney and Molly is an actress and writer.

After the sudden death of our 2 year-old daughter, we were the recipients of unspeakable kindness and service. We have tried to give back to those grieving, struggling, and in perilous circumstances to try and repay the life-saving service offered to us.

We gathered as a family after decorating our Christmas tree, knelt in prayer, and asked for guidance in choosing a refugee family to sponsor. After reading through the heart-wrenching stories and shedding tears, my children both made the clear decision to help this family. Please join us in supporting them!
