What's next for Rahaf now that she's resettled as a refugee in Canada?
Majed El Shafie with an important message this morning:
Women in Saudi Arabia live amongst some of the most restrictive conditions in the world today. Only last year were women giving the legal right to drive in Saudi Arabia. There are many basic day-to-day tasks that they cannot do without a male “guardian” approving it.— OFWI (@OFWI) January 14, 2019
For most refugees the gratitude to Canada never wanes, but there'll be times of loneliness and struggle to adapt to life in a foreign country without family or familiar loved ones. Like all Canadians, emotional challenges we face may not always be as apparent as physical wounds.— OFWI (@OFWI) January 14, 2019
We can all use our voices to pressure political leaders to make human rights a cornerstone of government policies. Living our values and standing by them, even when it comes with short-term monetary costs, will ultimately be a greater force for good in the world.— OFWI (@OFWI) January 14, 2019
