This Syrian cafe hires people with Down’s syndrome

and to encourage the community to integrate into society

Location: Damascus

Abdel Rahman Buraym has met a lot of new faces

since becoming a waiter at Sucette cafe

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) BURAYM'S FATHER, GHASSAN BURAYM, SAYING:

''The experience was wonderful. When he came to the cafe, he met many people and they saw how active he is and the smiles he gives. He always smiles, he is always nice and kind to people. I am not saying that just because he is my son, that is just his nature. He integrated well at his job, it is all going well and he's comfortable, and he loves the job."
