Colorado Volunteers Help Refugees Get Back On Their Feet

April 8, 2019

DENVER (CBS4) – Volunteers and organizers came together Sunday morning to help Colorado refugees in need. It’s the fourth year the Denver Health Foundation has put on this event.

Hundreds of volunteers spent time at Denver Health Lowry Clinic, serving refugees in Colorado.

“I think it really speaks to the importance that our community feels for welcoming new immigrants,” said Janine Young, Medical Director for the Denver Health Refugee Clinic.

“Kids who were born here, and kids who were born in other countries are all the same. They have the same things they love. There are toys in the back, the kids bond over this, they love it.”

Shabnam Abdullai, an 11-year-old refugee, got a lot of things she loved.
