Ministry Helps Refugees Create a New Life in U.S.

EAST GREENWICH, RI (July 8, 2010) – The Burmese refugees don’t know until just days before they arrive in the United States that this country will be their new home. They know nothing of the language, its customs, or even about modern appliances. Poor, largely uneducated, and persecuted by their native country, most have spent at least a decade living in refugee camps established in Thailand.
