Please join us on Sunday, January 7th at 10:00 a.m. as we hear from Jewish Vocational Services of Greater Kansas City clients who came to Kansas City from Iraq and the Congo. They will share their experiences transitioning to life in the United States.
Among the people who will speak is Ali Kaky who fled Iraq after numerous threats to his family. His son was a staff in the U.S. Coalition Forces in Iraq and was targeted for assassination. Ali arrived in the United States in 2015 with his family. He was a lecturer in an Iraq university with over 45 years of experience in the Iraqi public sector. He currently lives in North Kansas City with his family.
Our two speakers from the Congo both spent over fifteen years in a refugee camp before resettling in the United States.
