Vulnerable or Valuable?
One immigrant-owned company is growing and providing the dignity of work to refugees from around the world. Read their story.
We are 80+ staff joining with over 125 local churches and 800 volunteers to serve 5,500 refugees and immigrants each year. World Relief began offering services in DuPage County in 1979 and then opened an additional office in Aurora in 1999. In community with the local church, World Relief DuPage/Aurora envisions the most vulnerable people transformed economically, socially and spiritually.
World Relief DuPage/Aurora invites you to a special evening with Matthew Soerens and Dr. Issam Smeir, the authors of Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis. These experts will help us understand how we can respond to such a massive and complex crisis and will address such questions as: Who are refugees and other displaced peoples? What are the real risks and benefits of receivign them? How do we balance compassion and security?
