HIAS-a great humanitarian organizationMy hosts in Koukou have been the amazing Intersos (THANK YOU Emilie) My journey here and the meetings at the camps have been facilitated by HIAS - (THANK YOU Gaele and all at HIAS).
This is a description of the invaluable work of HIAS:
HIAS is the international migration agency of the American Jewish community, dedicated to providing rescue and refuge for persecuted and oppressed people around the world. Every year, HIAS helps thousands of refugees and immigrants on a non-sectarian basis to reunite with their families and resettle in the United States. We also advocate for fair and effective policies affecting refugees and immigrants. Since 1881, HIAS has assisted more than 4,500,000 people worldwide.
HIAS is currently working in Chad, providing trauma counseling and social services in five of that country's camps for refugees from the Darfur region of Sudan. Our corps of highly skilled professionals is specially trained to work with those at risk in areas of high conflict. To help HIAS help others, please visit and donate online at www.hias.org, or call (866) 871-9681.
