Community Helping Others - Got a Job? Last week I had the pleasure to meet Mohamed al Maassri, a Syrian Refugee who escaped the war with his family and landed in Norwalk 8 months ago. A group of 6 Churches and Synagogues have been helping him out. They even found him a job at Whole Foods. But sadly the pay and hours are not enough to sustain his family. He is a college graduate and owned a construction material import export business that he lost due to the war. I am hoping the Chamber community can help find him a better position. Please let me know if you have any ideas or a position for him. Click here to read an article about Mohamed
