This picture is too familiar.

A terrified four year old girl in a Middle Eastern refugee camp instinctively raises her hands in surrender. Life has already taught her what to do when a gun is pointed at her. But she does not recognize a camera.

Her raised hands reach across the world...and touch our hearts...what can we do?

There is a way to extend a helping hand right here in Washtenaw County.

Washtenaw Refugee Welcome (WRW) is an ecumenical volunteer group of citizens, community, and faith organizations dedicated to helping refugees resettle in Washtenaw County.
