Family Bios: September 22, 2018

We will meet a young man from Afghanistan who arrived in March of 2018.  He recently moved into his own apartment.  He speaks English quite well and was involved with our military personnel in his home country.  This association proved dangerous and he was granted asylum it the US.




We also will meet a family from the Democratic Republic of Congo who spent most of their lives in refugee camp.  War has existed in DRC for 20 years, resulting in millions of refugees. Some camps have as many as 400,000 people, all living in tents.  This couple met in camp and can barely remember their home country, having left with their parents many years ago.  All of their children were born in refugee camp.    The children are doing well in school and the family is happy to be living in peace.
