Faith & Life: How We Can Help Refugees 

January 24, 2017

The Syrian Crisis, the Lost Boys of Sudan, the Vietnamese Boat People. What is a refugee? How do we respond to what we see and hear on the news? At 10 am, this Sunday, in Hildebrand Hall, Plymouth Peace Action Group concludes its Faith & Life series: ‘Working for Peace through Justice.’ Offer a warm Plymouth welcome to “Refugee and Immigrant Children’s Program” of Lutheran Community Services. Paul Tan, staff member for the program, discusses the current worldwide refugee situation. There is a continued need for people to step forward and help refugees, especially young people who have no parent to take care of them. Since 1980, The RICP program of Lutheran Community Services NW has found new homes and families for hundreds of refugee youth in the Seattle area. Where are these youths currently coming from? What does it take to help one of these kids? Several Plymouth folks provide suppers for a monthly Foster Family Support Group meeting in conjunction with this organization.
