Sweet, Sweet Syria


Warning: Don’t read this if you’re hungry!

Our supporters have been enraptured by the story of Ruwaida and Khaled, Syrian refugees resettled through New American Pathways last year, who are opening the delicious business of Sweet, Sweet Syria with the dedication and support of their new community family.

We started to write a story about them – but there are so many good ones already published, we just thought we’d share!

The May edition of Atlanta Magazine features a beautifully-written story from volunteer and advocate Amanda Avutu about how working this a newly-arrived Syrian family has impacted her life. The same family was featured earlier this month in Forbes for their work to open a cookie business.

We continue to be blown away by the ingenuity and entrepreneurship not only of Ruwaida and Khaled, but of so many new Americans whom we help welcome to Georgia. We encourage everyone to come out to events and festivals in Clarkston so you, too, can try Sweet, Sweet Syria’s delicious cookies!
