Review for International Friendships, Inc., Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love International Friendships and the work they are doing among those who are new to our country. I haven't traveled abroad much, so I can only imagine how hard it would be arriving in a country you do not know and trying to make a life there. International Friendships loves and cares for those who are new to the U.S. I love that they meet internationals at the airport so they aren't alone when they get here, they provide transit, they provide activities such as a picnic for new arrivals so that they can acquaint themselves with their new surroundings. I imagine that holidays would be very lonely in a new country, but International Friendships thought of this and connects internationals with host families for various holidays throughout the year. Internationals get to share in the holiday spirit and learn about our culture and customs first hand. There is so much more that IFI does to support internationals physical, emotional, and spiritual needs as they adapt to a new life. This is an amazing nonprofit and I highly recommend them!
