DES MOINES, Iowa — The refugee experience in America was already difficult enough before COVID-19. Thankfully groups like the Refugee Alliance of Central Iowa are here to help the newest Iowans navigate resources during the pandemic.
The group is one of the many non-profit groups in central Iowa that is being assisted by the Disaster Recovery Fund that WHO 13 is promoting during our ‘13 Days of Giving.’
Eddah Bunei is the director of the COVID-19 hotline set up for refugees in Iowa. Operators are working Monday through Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm to answer questions in more than a dozen questions about COVID-19 and direct callers to resources at 1-877-558-2609.
You can make a donation to the Disaster Recovery fund online or by texting ’13 Cares’ to 443-21.
