Syrian Refugee

Last April, Florida Matters brought you the story of University of South Florida student Noor Shakfeh, a Syrian American who spent her spring break aiding Syrian refugees on the Syrian-Turkey border.

In this episode of Florida Matters, guest host Bobbie O’Brien talks with Shakfeh and her cousin, who has been granted political asylum in the U.S. and is living in Florida after being detained and tortured several times by the Assad Syrian government.

Please note the story of survival by Syrian citizen Mazen Jasem AlMahmoud contains sensitive material.
