Program on Unaccompanied Refugee Minors with Madap Sharma (Bethany Services)- Sunday, May 9, at 1 PM
Please stay on/return to the link for Meeting for Worship (shortcut https://tinyurl.com/CPMM2021MFW) this Sunday at 1 PM for a presentation on Unaccompanied Refugee Minors.
Unaccompanied Refugee Minors flee war, religious or ethnic persecution or disaster, neglect or violence in their country of origin. These children come from all over the world. Bethany serves these children by welcoming them in professional resource homes. There is a dire need of opening more homes to serve the URM youth who are some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
Madap Sharma is the Resource Developer with Bethany (bethany.org)’s unaccompanied refugee minor program in the Greater Delaware valley. Prior to this, Madap served as Director of refugee resettlement with Lutheran Children and Family Service and Bethany in Lancaster, PA. Madap comes with decade long pedagogic and andragogic experience both overseas and in the US. He has been a Ted fellow where he’s shared his life’s oddities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8K92ShvA1s as a refugee from the “World’s Happiest Nation!”
