Woman opens her home in London to refugees – since 2016 she has accommodated 30 people
Posted On –
Karina Litvack, a French-Canadian who lives in London has opened her home to refugees.
To date, her spare bedrooms have housed around 30 refugees and all except for one spent some time with her before going to live somewhere else.
The refugee who is still living with her, a Syrian man called Basel,, was the first to enter her home in 2016 and after he graduates he also plans to leave her house.
Basel escaped from Aleppo in Syria because of the civil war which has devastated the country for these last ten years.
Litvack says that Basel, who has just completed his first year at University, has become part of her family.
She says that she never recovered after her three children left home and that is why she started welcoming refugees.
The idea came to her after she heard about another couple who had welcomed a Syrian woman into their home and after she contacted the NGO which helps refugees, she started doing the same thing.
