Sep 7th, 2015 | By | Category: Editor's Picks, Featured Article, Multimedia, News

TODAY’S announcement the New Zealand would take extra Syrian refugees was met with joy by an Assyrian refugee who came to New Zealand as a 12-year-old from war torn Iraq in 1995.

Wellingtonian Linda Shamoon knows only too well the challenges that will be faced by the refugees who will arrive here over the next three years from Syria.

She spoke with reporter James Lobban soon after hearing the news that the government’s changed its mind about taking Syrian refugees.
