Having welcomed over 800 refugees in the past 6 years, World Relief Fox Valley is creating an opportunity for others to better understand and appreciate the journeys of refugees from around the world. This #GivingTuesday, November 27, join us for an interactive replication of the “coming home” experience for refugees, highlighting a glimpse of their pasts and sharing ways we can provide hope for their future. Get a sense for what it’s like to have to flee your home at a moment’s notice, travel through unforeseen physical hardship, live in a refugee camp, hope for resettlement, and begin a new life in the U.S.
11am-8pm – “coming home” experience
We recommend planning up to one hour for the experience
“coming home” appropriate for most school-aged children and above (no childcare provided)
No admission fees and no reservations required
Please let us know if you are bringing a group of 6 or more so we are better prepared to serve you
6pm– 7 pm – Program; In addition to the simulation, participants will enjoy music and the stories of refugees’ journeys to their new homes. Congolese vocalists and musicians Christopher and Nadine will share original music, and students from Oshkosh North High School with refugee backgrounds will share about their recent experiences fleeing the places they called home and adjusting to their new normal as teens in Oshkosh.
