Refugees are more than people in need

Based on media portrayals and false narratives, it can be easy to think of refugees as only people in need and to label them as drains on resources.  In my years working with refugees I have NEVER found this to be true.  Refugees are so much more than people in need, they are hard working, generous, and committed to making their communities a better place, wherever they are.  The Pentecostal Community Church in Dzaleka is a great example, as they have started a pre-school for the kids in their community, to help prepare them for Elementary school in the future.  We are proud to get behind this vision and many more of the refugee churches.
