My Heart in Kenya Film Screening
June 20
Centre Stage, City Hall

Options Community Services, City of Surrey, United Way, and The Children's Partnership are pleased to announce a Surrey Screening of the documentary My Heart in Kenya.

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

Zeynab 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 the Surrey 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.

The documentary is a rare look at the personal reunification story of a family that has settled in Surrey.
