We'd like you to Meet Ruth Acheinegeh
Ruth Acheinegeh ran for her life in 2017 from war-torn Cameroon. Once in Eugene, Ruth applied for asylum and was granted. The Refugee and Immigrant Services Program aided Ruth in adapting to a new culture, language, and location. In a short interview, Ruth stated, “I had the opportunity to have a contact person who was ready to help me with directions and drive me to all my appointments.” In addition, she emphasized how the contact person helped her share her culture and solve her challenges by providing resources and direction. Ruth has lived in Eugene for 3 years and works at NextStep computer recycling. To read more about Ruth, see this article from the Eugene Weekly.
