Large family of Syrian refugees reunited after spending nearly 4 years apart

There was a much-anticipated reunion at Regina International Airport on Nov. 13, 2019. Syrian refugee Abdulnaser Alkhatib and his wife and two children were reunited with family they have not seen in nearly four years. Most of the Alkhatib has been in the city since 2016 -- having arrived as government-sponsored refugees. The reunion was made possible in the wake of a Regina man's death. Jeremy Campbell's family raised $23,000 in his memory to privately sponsor the Syrian family after he died while travelling in Japan last year.
