Sanaa Al-Khannaq is Immigrant Services Calgary’s Volunteer of the Month
“I arrived at the refugee camp after our escape, and I saw two paths laid before me. My life at a camp for an undetermined number of years, or education and opportunities that I will create for myself.”
August 5th 1995 Miroslav and his family lost everything. Their home had burned down, and they escaped with nothing but the clothes on their backs. After a 140-kilometre escape, they finally made it from Croatia to Bosnia. Without a home or support and in a strange place, it would have been easy to lose hope, but Miro has always been an outlier, resilient, driven and positive.
