Building Bridges for Syrian Refugees

WestportNow.com Image
Staples High School’s Building Bridges Club today hosted a screening at the school of a film on the Syrian refugee crisis followed by a panel discussion. One of the panelists was Syrian refugee Mohammed Al-Massari who resettled with his family in Norwalk nine months ago with the aid of the Westport Interfaith Resettlement Committee, a group of nine churches and synagogues. Pictured with his wife Nour, he said he had a two-year wait to get here and the vetting process was so intense, the U.S. government “knew more about me than my own father.” Club members are behind them.
