Dured Alahlabe "The Chairperson of the Amal Project" is The winner of the Young Scot Community Award 2017

The Chairperson of the Amal Project "Dured Alhalabe" wins the young scot community award 2017

From volunteering at a local food bank, helping at the Christmas lights switch-on and making up hampers, Dured can’t do enough for the community who gave him a home. This time last year, the future looked bleak for Dured, who was living in in Jordan after fleeing with his family from the war-torn Syrian city of Homs. But in February 2016, the Alhalabes’ lives changed for the better when they were resettled in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, as part of the Syrian Vulnerable Persons’ Relocation Scheme
Grateful to the people who welcomed his family with open arms, Dured has been doing everything he can to give something back to the community. As well as volunteering at local projects, Dured, whose home city has been destroyed in the fighting between President Assad’s forces and revolutionaries, has become a spokesperson for the 70 Syrian refugees resettled in Aberdeenshire.
Dured, who has endured unimaginable suffering, likes to think of himself as a new Scot
Congratulations Dured
