Event Description:
On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 6PM Bob Bartles of World Relief will be at First Presbyterian Church of Mount Pleasant to discuss ways to assist Ukrainian refugee resettlement in SE Iowa. Families from Ukraine have a special refugee status called humanitarian parole. Once the family acquires a sponsor and has been vetted by the government, they can come to the US and seek employment immediately. This meeting will inform those interested in supporting these very deserving families how to get involved—including the option of sponsorship. While a sponsor commits to making sure they have shelter, food, access to health insurance (the basic necessities of life), the sponsor does not have to provide all these things, just help the newly arrived families as they get established. This will be an opportunity to meet Bob Bartles, a sponsor and the leader of the refugee resettlement agency (World Relief) that helps sponsors help families. Find out more about how you can help on Wednesday, June 21st, at 6PM at First Presbyterian Church of Mount Pleasant (902 S Walnut St).
