Refugee Resettlement Committee
Old Lyme welcomes the Al Kafaji family — Ghassan, Maysom, Lelas, and Ali — from Iraq. They recently resettled here with the help of IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services) of New Haven and the Old Lyme Refugee Resettlement Committee.
Ghassan Al Kafaji served as a translator for a unit of the Connecticut National Guard in Baghdad, nearly 15 years ago. Ghassan has now passed two sections of the Connecticut Driver's test and is currently searching for a job. The family would be helped a great deal with the gift of an automobile. If anyone can help in this way, please contact the church office.
The three churches and the Old Lyme Refugee Resettlement Committee encourage residents who have questions or would like to make a donation to this effort, to communicate with any of the church offices via email: FCCOL: firstname.lastname@example.org; Christ the King Church: email@example.com; Saint Ann's Episcopal Church: firstname.lastname@example.org.
