I'm raising $1000 to help the IRC in their important work of resettling refugees in the United States. By donating you will be helping people like the Tlas family. They were forced out of their home in Syria when war broke out and after a 4-year long vetting process they were allowed into the US to start a new life. The IRC helped the Tlas family find a suitable home, work opportunities, ESL classes , and shepherded them through the process of getting medical coverage and enrolling their children in school.
"We felt like we were finally in a democratic country, land of freedom. It's a beautiful country- a country that respects individuals. There are a lot of things that are extremely different for us, but it's our second life. It’s hard to believe that we survived." -Azzam Tlas
