Shermin Kruse Travels To Turkey To Work With Syrian Refugee Children
Barack Ferrazzano partner, Shermin Kruse traveled to Turkey with the Karam Foundation, a Chicago-based nonprofit that is providing physical wellness, social and educational programming for Syrian refugee children.
While much of refugee aid is focused on meeting basic needs, the emotional well-being of refugee children uprooted from their homes and traumatized by war is forgotten. Kruse said the children and teens she met want to learn things that will help them move on with their lives.
Kruse was there as a program evaluator and writer. She saw many opportunities for lawyers to connect their skills with humanitarian work in the refugee community.
