A Six-Bedroom Home That’s All About Celebrating Family

Ashraf Barobi was just 12 years old when his father, mother, and baby sister were killed in front of his eyes in the Congo. At that point he knew he had to do whatever it took to get his remaining sisters safe, so they hid for two months and made their way to a refugee camp in Uganda. There, they were reunited with their aunt and cousin, and the six family members were eventually granted refugee status in Ogden, Utah. Once in the States, Ashraf continued to do his best to provide for his family, sacrificing everything in order to keep them safe. But while they had each other, they didn’t really have a suitable family home. Enter the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition team, who not only created a brand new home for the tight-knit crew, but came through with scholarships for each of the family members in the end. Check out the home they created with-and for-family love.

Watch back-to-back new episodes of  Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Sundays at 8 & 9PM on HGTV Canada, now also available through STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels.
