MEET REFUGEES & EXPERIENCE THEIR STORIES
We're celebrating World Refugee Day 2019! Did you know that Catholic Charities WV is the only refugee resettlement agency in the state? We are highlighting the unique gifts that refugees bring to our community.

WALK A MILE IN THEIR SHOES
Experience a simulation Refugee Camp. Learn about what drives people away from their home countries, and the steps they take (literally) between leaving home and arriving here. Hear the first-hand experience of an educator from her days in the Chamisko refugee camp (Iraq). Celebrate their resilience!
CREATE ART OF YOUR OWN
Design a postcard to send to a refugee child. On average, refugees are displaced for 17 years. Offer encouragement, prayers, and well-wishes on their journey to a new home.
