A SYRIAN refugee family offered a home in Cardigan has found a way to say thank you to the town during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ahmed and Enas Hamoudy, along with their three children, came to Cardigan from Syria just over a year ago thanks to the support and efforts of community charity Croeso Teifi.

They were the second Syrian family to arrive in the town and have quickly became established in the local community, with Ahmed a familiar sight working in a local barber shop.

Now, to help out during the current crisis, Ahmed and his wife have been preparing tasty traditional Syrian meals for the care staff at Brondesbury Lodge.

“We saw how hard everyone was working and we wanted to do something to help as a way of saying thank you for the welcome we have had here,” said Ahmed.

“We have had a crisis in our lives and been helped and we could not stand by and do nothing when all this was going on.”

The couple paid for the boxes and ingredients for the 40 staff themselves and the food has delivered by local volunteers helping with the corona community response in Cardigan.

“I think they enjoyed the food and we would very much like to do it again,” said Ahmed.
