Talia's Story | Red Door Family Shelter

Talia's Story

Talia and her 11 month old baby boy came to the Red Door as refugee claimants. Talia had fled Sudan with her baby to Saudi Arabia, but when she was at risk of being forced to return to a home where she faced violence, she had no choice but to flee. She came to Canada to seek asylum and a safe future for her baby. They found sanctuary at the Red Door and Talia is working hard to build a life in Canada for her and her son.

Talia was a trained medical doctor in Sudan but would need to take an accreditation course to be able to work in her field here. She is working hard to save for the course, and is attending ESL classes. Her conviction to build a brighter future for her family is an inspiration.
