Homework Americans support new Afghan refugees


Caroline Clarin, who has been working in Minnesota for days, is trying to give hope to people who are going through a series of frustrating messages from the distant world.

Clarin and her husband Illyll Raymond, who has run the U.S. Department of Agriculture program in Afghanistan since 2017, have helped five Afghans and their families enter the United States through the program. They are now trying to help more than half a dozen other Afghans and their families have left Afghanistan.

“I was getting messages of despair and waiting to be killed by the Taliban, and I didn’t finish until it was over,” said Raymond. And instead of sitting in a comfortable chair in Minnesota where I feel comfortable, I try to say ‘please don’t despair, think about your children and hold on’.
