Syrian family dreams of opening chocolate shop in Antigonish
There was a tearful reunion at the Halifax airport Thursday night as Antigonish's first Syrian family arrived after two days of travel.
The Hadhad family was greeted first by their son, Tareq, who arrived three weeks earlier.
"This is the first time for the whole family to travel by planes," he said of their long journey. "It must be great experience."
There were also more than a dozen people from the community at the airport who held signs and presented the family with flowers. The group Syria-Antigonish Families Embrace spent months fundraising. Their efforts were so successful, they're expecting three families to arrive this year.
"We've been building up the anticipation for this for several months," said SAFE co-founder Tanya Felix. She said the group has been studying Arabic to make sure they could speak to the newest members of their community.
"This is a really good day for Tareq and the Antigonish community."
As the Hadhad family arrived, the SAFE members sang a traditional Arabic song. It didn't take long for the tears to start to fall.
