Making a Difference for Syrian Refugees in Southeastern Turkey

Listening for Clues is pleased to present our new series, “Good News!” featuring weekly conversations with people who are making a difference, large or small. We want everyone to know what they are doing, why they are doing it, and how. So, our listeners and viewers can experience the good news and go out and make a difference themselves.

We are honored to have Jeff Hual as our guest for this episode. The Rev’d Jeff Hual is an Episcopal priest serving at All Hallows Parish in the Diocese of Maryland.This is a story of friendship and collaboration between two faithful persons, one a Muslim and the other a Christian. Together with his longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Hakan Gulerce, Jeff works as an advocate for the rights and needs of Syrian refugees in Southeastern Turkey, a migrant group whom the world has largely forgotten and who for the most part live in the most dire circumstances.
