Jesuit Refugee Service’s regional director for the Middle East, Fr. Nawras Sammour is a Syrian and has seen his country change many times over many years. He spoke to Steve Paiken of TVO in Ontario on Jan. 4, 2019. A few years ago he had little hope of the end to the civil war in Syria. Today things are a little different. The cities are more calm, roads are more secure but there are several Syria’s side by side. There are American troops, Turkish troops and others. The future is still uncertain. Syrians are happy to have Canada welcoming them. The issue of language difficulties still is present.
The long range plan is a secure peaceful Syria. The Catholic Church plays a large role in providing education and socio-economic relief.
