Most refugees arrive in the United States with no financial means and several thousand dollars of debt – the US government requires them to repay the cost of the airfare from their detention centre.
There are a range of financial needs refugees may have: from winter clothing to emergency accommodation; books for children to mental health treatment following years of detention; money for English classes or an affordable laptop. Every bit counts.
