The Almiqdads

Handllha and his family escaped Daraa, Syria in 2013 to Jordan. After one year of investigation, the UNHCR offered them to move to the US. The Almiqdad family moved to the US in September of 2016.

Handllah owned a successful restaurant in Daraa, Syria. Unfortunately, because of the war, his dreams and hard work vanished. Handllah is ready to have a fresh start in the US.

In the future, the family hopes to open a new restaurant in the US. Meanwhile, they are busy learning English and searching for employment.

Through Tiyya, they are able to receive a monthly diaper supply and helpful mentorship.
