Former Iraqi refugee leads inspiring community outreach programs
http://newbostonpost.com/2015/12/21/former-iraqi-refugee-leads-inspiring-community-outreach-programs/Fr. Milad Selim, dean of St. George Orthodox Cathedral in Worcester, understands firsthand what it is to be deprived of basic necessities. When his family escaped Iraq and fled to Jordan, he and his siblings were unable to attend school or find work. But after settling down in the thriving Middle Eastern Christian community in Worcester, things improved dramatically. Now, Fr. Selim leads a large congregation that sponsors some of the most generous charitable works in the region.
