Nameet Yousfi is enjoying her new life in Northern Ireland

When Nameet Yousfi arrived in Northern Ireland four years ago, after leaving war-torn Syria, she didn't know what to expect.

The mother of five, who had worked for 17 years as an agricultural engineer in the State Planning Commission in Damascus, knew nothing about the place she was about to call home and she spoke little English. Under the Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme, Nameet (70) was resettled in the Colin area of west Belfast along with her husband, one daughter and one son.
