Real Life

A Kurdish refugee couple with three children had special problems trying to make their way here in America. They couldn't meet their rent because the woman took ill, while the man was studying to learn how to resettle here. We paid their rent during the crisis to allow him to complete his studies and resume his place as provider in this new world.
