On November 25, 2014, Shaymaa Arkawazi and her five children arrived from Iraq. They lived in Bagdad with constant threats of car bombs and threats to their safety. They were in danger because they are Kurds and Shaymaa’s brother was an interpreter for the U.S. Army. She is very thankful to be in a peaceful place with her children. However, her husband is waiting for clearance and she arrived here without him. Since then an appeal was sent to have him join his family. This may take 6 months or more. Until then she and her family are continuing to adjust to the cold weather, new schools, new language, new culture. Shaymaa continues to take ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. The Goshen, Cornwall and Torrington communities has been supporting them through rides (to ESL and medical appointments) and monitory support to supplement her cash allowances for rent and utilities. Anyone wishing to be involved in supporting this family until the father arrives can call Mary Tracy at 860-491-1498 or 914-525-9590. Thanks.
