Syrian Refugee Saves Her Special Day By Fixing Bride’s Broken Zipper


Lindsay Coulter, a photographer was there to cover a wedding when the worst happened, followed by a quick rescue. She shared the story afterwards on her social media account

The bride had broken her dress’s zipper just minutes before the wedding and there was nobody to help her at the moment.

“The teeth had separated and the zipper itself wouldn’t go back together,” Coulter told. And so they checked if anyone from the neighbors can fix it. While the bride was having the worst moment of her life, the doorbell rang and two angels arrived. At the door were Syrian father and son, holding a sewing machine.

The tailor named Ibrahim Halil Dudu had just moved to Canada four days ago, told another neighbor David. “I went out to take some photos of the groomsmen and came back to find the tailor putting the finishing stitches on her dress”, Coulter mentioned on social media. And so this man who had just escaped suffering became the bride’s hero.

The Syrian refugee could not speak English and communicated through gestures.  “They didn’t speak a word of english, and had been communicating by using Google Translate. The young boy looked at his Dad, the girls around him, at my camera and back to his Dad about a hundred times. He was curious and in seemingly good spirits. I couldn’t help but stand back in awe of the situation”, wrote Coulter.

This gives us a beautiful message that compassion has no language or ethnicity and when one takes up to help someone, no barrier can stop one from doing so.

Appreciating those who are hosting Refugees, Coulter said, “Every weekend I take photos of people on the happiest days of their lives, and today one man who has seen some of the worst things our world has to offer came to the rescue” She added, “I am so proud to live in Canada, a country who has opened our doors to refugees countless times. I’m in awe of the families who have welcomed these strangers in to their homes and lives, and I’m inspired by the resilience of the Syrian people. We are truly blessed”

The refugees do not come empty handed but bring with them their distinguished abilities and the world must value that.

“She was so excited and so happy, I was more than happy to get to work. I like to help Canadian people from my heart”, Dadu told CTV News. Coulter received an overwhelming response on her post. People expressed their joy over this inspiring story of that teaches brotherhood.
