From Syria to Saint Louis: Refugees Give Back By Feeding the Homeless
03:47 | 08.05.20 | NR | CC

As Syrian Refugees, Mawda Altayan and Rana Alayed have experienced hardship, uncertainty, and loss. But after arriving in St. Louis, they joined forces with a local named Jessica Bueler to help give back to their new city. Each week, their group Welcome Neighbor STL provides hot meals to the homeless, and hosts a supper club to foster a spirit of community and raise money for those in need. Filmed in February 2020 in partnership with @nextdoor.
