'Abwab' is an Arabic-language newspaper that is designed to help refugees acclimate to life in Germany by supplying them with information about immigration, local news and updates from their home country. The publication is one of many resources that have been developed to help support Syrian refugees as they adjust to life in a new country.
Abwab, which translates in 'Doors' in Arabic, was launched by a group of Syrian refugees currently living in Germany. The publication's editor-in-chief is a man named Ramy Alasheq, who is a Syrian-Palestinian journalist and poet trying to help refugees maintain ties to their homeland. By providing information about life in Germany and abroad, the newspaper helps to ease the transition to life in a new country.
The Arabic-language newspaper ultimately helps to bridge the gap between refugees and the life they are forced to leave behind.
