A Syrian refugee who recently moved to the USA with the help of the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) wants to give back to his host community and improve people's perception of his culture and religion.

Abdel Moein and his family spent years in Lebanon waiting to be resettled in Florida to begin a new life.

Their lives momentarily were put on hold in late January after an executive order effectively suspended their entry to the United States.

Jocelyne Sambira has the details.
