Imagine leaving all of your friends, relatives and colleagues behind and fleeing to a safe place—where you don’t know a soul.
Pascal Nzabahanai knows that scenario well. Three months ago, he fled violence and instability in his home country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He’s a refugee.
We met Pascal at his rental home in Springfield.
“It’s like starting a new life, you have no anything, you have no money. You don’t have any way to shop,” Nzabahanai said.
When refugees first arrive in their new country, they often feel disoriented and lonely.
