Last Week at Rotary - Jan 27, 2022

Sponsored Afghan Family Update

The Afghan refugee family being sponsored by our club, Holland After Hours Rotary Club, and Central Park Reformed Church arrived yesterday. They were met at Ford Airport by a delegation and moved into their temporary housing. The family consists of a father, mother, 2 adult daughters, and a teenage son. The father worked for the BBC in Afghanistan. The welcoming delegation fed them dinner in their new house and stocked the kitchen with food.
 
Opportunities to help with this project include transportation to and from appointments, recreational activities, and helping them get acquainted with Holland. We will need to find them permanent housing in a few months. So, if you have extra household items to furnish their new living quarters, set them aside. They will need housing with 3-4 bedrooms for about $1200/month.
 
Rotary contacts for the resettlement project are Elizabeth Scott, Kent Fry, David Beatie, and Sandy Hansen.

Outbound Exchange Students

Brisa Sanchez Valdez and Kierian Overbeek are our outbound exchange students for the next school year. They are both students at Holland High School. They (and we) learned from clues about the country where they will be spending their year. Brisa will be in Taiwan and Kierian will be in India.
