"My parents sold our family home, and used their savings and the money from the sale to send my brother and me away." Mohab had to flee Hamas and Syria when he was only 18 years old. He's now in the Netherlands waiting for the result of his family reunification application. While he waits, he's helping other refugees with an app he developed that provides vital information regarding paperwork, applications, and integrating into a new country. Meet Mohab today on our Instagram story.
