On November 4 One Free World International hosted a Freedom of Religion Conference at Catch the Fire Toronto. Watch video from the event here:
"When Adiba Dasni* arrived at Toronto Pearson Airport last February, after a 15-hour flight from Iraq with two sisters and six children in tow, the Prime Minister was not waiting at the airport to greet them. There were no camera crews, no volunteers waving little Canadian flags. In fact, the Dasni family’s arrival paints a very different picture from the one conveyed by news coverage of Syrian refugees arriving to open arms in 2015."
Following on the heels of his well-received op ed published by The Hill, Rev. El Shafie travelled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Members and staff of the United States Congress to discuss the important work of One Free World International.
