Being willing to help a refugee means so much, that you are taking time and making the effort. I encourage you to help them feel like they are survivors, not victims. Don't mention the war; don't remind them of where they are now in their lives. Just introduce yourself and be curious about them. Ask them questions about themselves as you would with anyone who decided to move to your community, instead of having been forced to move. We seek a sense of normalcy, as well as a new start. Nujeen Mustafa Nujeen is a refugee who fled Syria in 2013 during the war and has resettled in Germany. She was the keynote speaker at RRC's 2020 virtual annual fundraising event,
OUR MISSION Mobilize the community to welcome and support refugees and asylum seekers, fostering their well-being and self-sufficiency.
