Refugee: a person who has been forced to flee his or her country under great distress because of persecution, war, or violence.
It is not by choice, but by necessity, that a refugee leaves home. By nature, 100 percent of refugees have experienced trauma. Because of this, they are vulnerable and need assistance. You can help by giving to these amazing organizations that are making a difference in the lives of refugees in the name of Jesus.
These organizations operate in Clarkston, Georgia, the most diverse square mile in the U.S.
