Refugees from Chad, Syria, Somalia, and Afghanistan will share their stories during a free program at the United World College in Montezuma at 1 pm Sunday, February 26, in Kluge Auditorium.
As part of the Refugees Speak program, refugees will talk about their struggles to survive, adjust to a new culture and heal from the trauma of their experiences.
A reception with refreshments will follow.
Financial donations are sought, and can be made by check, cash and/or grocery store gift certificates. Refugees are in need of shoes for pre-teens and teenagers, kitchen knives, food processors, blenders and cleaning supplies.
Donations can be dropped off at Semilla's Natural Foods at 510 University Ave., Las Vegas, or brought to the event at UWC-USA.
