Originally from Syria, brothers Omar and Saad Al Kassab reflect on their path into Australia as refugees. It's a story that features fear and violence, bravery and friendship, the global connection of the scouting movement, and a humble dictionary. Told with great courage, honesty and humour, they highlight the experiences they've shared with thousands of others fleeing war torn Syria, and their hopes for the future.

Omar and Saad Al Kassab were 17 and 14 respect­ively when the Syr­ian Civil War broke out.

Omar act­ively par­ti­cip­ated in demon­stra­tions for peace and demo­cracy in Syria and in April of 2013, whilst study­ing Engin­eer­ing at uni­vers­ity, he was arres­ted and tor­tured.

Their story includes their human­it­arian work along­side fel­low Scouts, impris­on­ment, the loss of friends and fam­ily and finally, their escape to a new life in Aus­tralia.

Omar and Saad are pas­sion­ate about pro­mot­ing under­stand­ing and aware­ness of the situ­ation facing Syria and its cit­izens, at a time when the world is strug­gling to deal with the worst human­it­arian crisis since the Second World War. In Aus­tralia, they have act­ively recon­nec­ted with Scouts move­ment and resumed their edu­ca­tion. Omar is now study­ing towards a Bach­elor of Busi­ness and Saad is cur­rently com­plet­ing Year 12.
