Saadia and her family arrived in the US five years ago after leaving the Sudan as refugees in and a stay at a refugee camp in Egypt.
The family settled in North Philly (Saadia, her husband and 3 wonderful boys) until employment opportunities took them to Carlisle, Pa two years ago.
The African Family Health Organization asked Charity in Action in 2018 to help the family with some bills. Abdallah (the husband0) had sustained and eye injury and was out of work for several months.
Charity in Action was able to get the family above water, and when they decided to relocate to Carlisle Charity in Action was also able to pay for the move and 3 months rent to help get the family on their feet.
Friendships have emerged as well. We were able to take the kids to Philadelphia Union game, and there have been many trips to visit the family to help out with ongoing needs as they emerge.
It is a joy to know Saadia and her family!
