Refugee to Refugee
Helping the hurricane Katrina Victims

A call for volunteers

As we all know, America is the home millions of refugees from around the world. If you have a translation company in America the end user of your product will be a person who has been a refugee or an immigrant. That means that person has an experience being a refugee and has experience and skill how to stay alive and how to rebuild his or her life.

Most of you by now may heard about what happened to millions of Americans in the South. Hundreds are dead, thousands become homeless and millions of homes are destroyed. We want to pass our condolences for the families and relatives who lost their loved once. Now the survivors of Hurricane Katrina are forced to be a refugee in Huston and other cities. It will be months even years before these people regain their normal life.

We think immigrants and refugees around the world can share their surviving skills and can help their fellow American refugees. We think it is chance for most refugees in America to payback for the help they got. We are running a campaign to raise money to help the hurricane Katrina victims. Our campaign is called
"REFUGEE TO REFUGEE, A CHANCE TO PAYBACK " you can visit the temporary web site at

These are some of the tasks we are planning to accomplish .

Partnering with local and national NGOs and community organizations and organize multicultural even to raise money for the victims.

Get some inspiring stories from ex refugees and publish the story in our web site
Teach the public what to do in time of natural and man made disasters.
And several others
