Amina and her five kids arrived from Eritrea after a long stay in a refugee camp. They arrived in the US in 2015.
We met them in 2017, and helped pay some bills to get them above water. In the next year, we also helped them move out of a dangerous rental house and into a better spot. There was a lot of learning about the whole “help” thing on both sides, but in the end it has been a rewarding relationship and we hope to help the family as much as possible moving forward.
