Bowling Green police department helps refugees stay warm

As record-setting cold descends on the United States, the Bowling Green, KY police department brought a special gift to Karenni refugees crowded together in what has previously been described as substandard housing, here

Police arrived in squad cars bearing 150 warm winter coats for the refugees living at the Lover’s Lane Apartments on New Years Day.

Cindy, who helped coordinate the project,  reports from Bowling Green:

The refugees said they were all so happy when the police arrived and to receive their gifts.

The refugees in return, gave them homemade gifts from their native culture and made them a small meal.

Some refugees were surprised that a caseworker for the International Center was in attendence since tensions between refugees and the resettlement agency have been evident for months.
