Voices from the Valley: Welcoming Refugees

In this episode we’re discussing the number of refugees from other countries who have recently resettled here in the Fox Valley. What is life like for them, and how can our communities be welcoming to our new neighbors? Most of them come from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa. Two years ago, we began to see many come through the Afghanistan evacuation program About 300 more refugees will resettle here by the end of 2023.

We hear from Tami McLaughlin, executive director of World Relief Fox Valley about the resettlement of people from Afghanistan seeking refuge and starting a new life in our communities, and the challenges they face as they make the Fox Valley their new home.
