Event description

Description

My Heart in Kenya is a touching one-hour documentary about an emotional reunion years in the making.

Zeynab Mahamed had to make an impossible choice. While fleeing with her children to Canada from a Kenyan refugee camp, she was forced to leave the youngest, baby Nasteha, behind.

Ruth Beardsley heard this harrowing story while working with Zeynab in a United Way-supported First Steps: Early Years Refugee Program. Ruth decided to do something incredible: Travel to Nairobi and return Nasteha to her mother in Canada.

My Heart in Kenya follows Ruth’s journey to Kenya as she navigates the seemingly insurmountable barriers that split Zeynab’s family apart.

An engaging Q&A will follow the film.
