You’re not alone if you’re horrified by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And with the Taliban retaking control of Afghanistan, people are being forced to flee their country with no place to go at a record pace. Unfortunately, this type of aggression is nothing new to the thousands of families, many of which are women and children, who annually flee from their homeland because they are in danger of being persecuted. Samaritas and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service have taken the lead in resettling New Americans and their families and is currently looking for assistance in supporting refugees coming to Michigan.
