Refusing to flee to better serve at her church relief center in SyriaNovember 10, 2017
“I remember I was sitting in the house during Ramadan and then suddenly shells started falling next in my neighbourhood. The people outside were yelling ‘if you don’t leave now we will kill you!’. I was sitting with my in-laws and my one year old son and 40 day old daughter. Our neighbours helped us by making a commotion with a flash firework so that we could run away. We fled to Aleppo as we heard thing were better there, but it wasn’t. We were treated badly there too and so my husband’s brother suggested we come to Lebanon. At first the soldiers wouldn’t let me leave Aleppo but finally we got out. On the border we had no paperwork as we had left it all behind so we had many troubles there.
We arrived in Lebanon in the beginning of winter and it was really cold. Our neighbors told us that there was a church helping Syrians. I didn’t want to come as I was a conservative Muslim, but I decided to go and once I did, something touched my heart and I felt comfortable.
I feel like these people are my family and I would never give up on them as they have never given up on me.
The love I have seen from these people is unlike anything I have seen from any place.”
