“Threads of new life” – Syrian refugees take steps toward the future (story 2 in a series by the Boston Globe)

Threads of new life

“Advice for making friends without a common language: Show your classmates who you are until you learn the words to tell them. Make your expressions, your eyes and hands, spell out your empathy and kindness.”

The Boston Globe follows up with the Hayani family in the second part of their series following the experiences of Boston-area Syrian refugees resettled with assistance from the JFS Syrian Refugee Humanitarian Project.

JFS resolutely stands with refugees and immigrants and is proud to partner with these community leaders, volunteers and activists to provide safety, hope and opportunity to Syrian war refugees.
