When I first came to Kenya in 1993 I worked with refugees in a little self-help ministry called Hope Craft. Today I help with our international students that are on scholarship at Daystar. Some of them are refugees and some are here by themselves on a student visa; also away from home and family.
Regardless of the circumstances, I find myself drawn to the needs of those that are away from their own cultures. Maybe for the simple reason, I am too. I recently read an article that tells about an African refugee far from home and family. I wanted to share it here so that you can get a picture of what sometimes happens and how it feels.
