Refugee Resettlement Update

We helped Fraidan and his family move in the week after Thanksgiving 2023. Today, 17 year old Nooran is attending high school and 19 year old Amina is working on registering at Ohlone college.  Fraidan has his driver’s license and hopes to get a car, but currently they get around on bikes provided by Good Karma Bikes in San Jose or Uber/Lyft. Fraidan and Aziza hope to find jobs soon.

What do they need? Jobs…We are always on the lookout for job opportunities for our families.  

How can you help us support them?… The shed is pretty well stocked at the moment, but there are a few items we are low on or out of completely. Most needed: 

  • pillows (a family of 4 needs 4 pillows so they go fast)
  • laptop computers
  • cutting boards
  • colanders
  • mixing bowls
  • 9×13 baking pans
  • measuring cups & spoons
  • 2 qt. pitchers
  • hot water pots (tea kettles)
  • hand mixers
  • irons & ironing boards
  • broom and dust pan
  • vacuums & knife sets
  • Coffee tables and side tables for table lamps are needed

If you have any of these item, please call/text Don Kaefer (510-427-3007) with a picture of the items and dimensions. The families are very grateful for all the necessities we are able to provide to them and we are so very grateful for all the support you continue to give us.
