Imagine what it would be like to be forced to flee the only home you’ve ever known, unsure if you will ever come home again. Then imagine that, after several years of interviews, screenings and waiting, you board an airplane to an unfamiliar place with new faces and experiences. Many of these faces may not speak your language or understand anything about where you came from.
For refugees accepted for resettlement to the United States, building a new life can be a long journey. Other live in limbo in countries such as Indonesia, Serbia and Egypt, waiting for a permanent place to call home. And for children traveling alone, the risk of falling through the gaps in transit is even higher. Help CWS serve and welcome our refugee neighbors with basic resources, community orientation services, and personal support.
