Help sought for Syrian Family
Jacky Mattam is seeking help for a Syrian Family in Grove.
I have a friend who is exploring what is available locally to help Ayman (the father of the Syrian family who moved to Grove last September) to get involved in the community.
In Syria he was a painter and decorator and also did some wood carving and worked as a taxi driver.
Anything that gives him the chance to get experience and practice his English would be great (he's learning from scratch so that's a work in progress!)
He would love to be able to work but even just a few hours a week volunteering would be great.
Anything you can offer or think of please let me know as soon as you can.
If you can help in any way, please contact Jacky email@example.com
