New arrivals!

ebtsamfamilythreeVisitors to the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market will know Ebtsam Elsheikh, the vendor with “the million watt smile.”

Nest worked with Ebtsam, who also is a member of the group, to bring four of her relatives who were Sudanese refugees in Cairo. After a 27 month wait, her sister Saphia, her two nieces Safaa and Alaa and her nephew Abdulhai arrived in Saskatoon in March!

A month later, Abdulhai landed a full-time job working for a local construction company and Safaa and Alaa began English classes (Level 4 and 5) at SaskPolytechnic.

On weekends, Saphia and her nieces often can be found with Ebtsam at the Farmers’ Market.

Pictured here are Ebtsam, Alaa, Saphia, Safaa and Abdulhai
