Our next Eritrean refugee family

Our church family has been eagerly anticipating the arrival of our next refugee family for several years. The family is comprised of Alawa’s sister and her husband and three children ages 6, 11 and 15. The family is now healthy and they have completed their orientation at the refugee camp. We expect that they will probably arrive in the U.S. this summer. There is a need for a temporary place for the family to live when they first arrive. They will have a lot of appointments when they first arrive (e.g., doctors, public assistance, etc.) and may need help with transportation to some of these appointments. The parents speak English, which will ease the transition. Please contact John Stauffer (610-565-5094 or BigJohnStauffer@yahoo.com) or Chris Darr (610-357-3587 or darr.christine@gmail.com) if you can help in either of these areas.
