'Dear Refugee. Love, Zarmina'
An Afghan refugee to America from the 1980s pens a letter to incoming Afghan refugees sharing an understanding with them of the many decades of struggle they have endured in their home country.
Their struggles continue as they leave everything behind and move into the unknown. The film offers insight into what starting a new life is like for refugees and the challenges they endure.
Through its Road to Independence Fund (Y2I), Neighbors for Refugees, a Westchester nonprofit and refugee resettlement organization, has helped more than 300 Westchester refugees, SIV's, asylum seekers, and refugees in the New York TriState areas.
These families have escaped violence and persecution to live in a safer and more secure environment. Our programs have given New York Refugees, and our neighbors, the tools and networks needed to move from surviving to thriving. We are truly about building a better life together.
I urge you to celebrate the extraordinary courage and contributions of refugees past and present.
