Friends of Refugees Inc
September 21, 2011

I was looking for a place to make a difference in my community and maybe even the world! Big aspirations. Friends of Refugees is a place to do just that. With so many people from all over the world coming to live in my neighborhood, I am delighted to be able to work with Friends of Refugees. Helping the kids with their homework, listening to them read, or just sitting and chatting is such a pleasure. The relationships that I am able to build with the children are very meaningful. Recently a young girl asked me to help her as she wrote a story. She wrote of being lost without friends and then finding friends. Then those friends had to move but she wrote that she would always remember them. It was insightful to hear her write of loss. We talked some of her move. I think that this kind of experience is not only educationally helpful but gave her a way of expressing her feelings. I am honored to be a part of Friends of Refugees.
