Fabrangen supports immigrant families
Fabrangen is working with the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC) to provide support for refugees families. We are currently working with an Eritrean refugee family of four who arrived at the very beginning of the Covid pandemic.
Prior to coming to the U.S., the family spent seven years in Ethiopian refugee camps. Since April of 2020, Fabrangen members have been helping the family learn English, and assisting the three daughters (ages 18, 16, 12) by securing computers and Wifi, helping them to develop technical expertise and getting what they need in order to participate in their online high school and middle school classes. The girls are very interested in pursuing their education: one daughter wants to become a doctor and another is particularly interested in math.
Covid 19 and the need for social distancing have added complexity to the family’s transition to life in the U.S. Fabrangen has been helping the family to adjust to life here and assisting with a variety of needs during this unusually challenging period, so the family will be able to achieve their aspirations of building a good life for themselves in the US. We welcome and need your support in helping this lovely wonderful family.
