Afghan Refugee Offers Heartfelt Thanks to Catholic Charities Staff

Catholic Charities is assisting Afghan Refugees through the Refugee Resettlement Program.

If you have ever wondered how the clients of Catholic Charities fair with your support, then we are thrilled to share the following letter of gratitude. Aemal, a refugee from Afghanistan who arrived in New York early this year, recently wrote a letter to Catholic Charities Immigration & Refugee Services thanking the staff there for her successful resettlement in the United States.

The letter reads:

Hello everyone,

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the Catholic Charities New York team for their unwavering support over the past 5.5 months. From the moment I set foot in the United States, Catholic Charities has been an incredible pillar of assistance, ensuring my smooth transition and helping me thrive in this new chapter of my life.

I am particularly indebted to my exceptional case manager, Kimberly Cuapio. Her unwavering dedication, professionalism, and punctuality have been truly remarkable. Kimberly has been my guiding light, involved in every step of my journey towards success. Her expertise and compassionate approach have not only provided me with vital support but have also instilled in me a sense of confidence and determination to overcome challenges.

In addition, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the remarkable job developers, Boukary Ouedraogo and George Tarr, for their unwavering commitment in helping me prepare for interviews and find suitable employment opportunities.

I would be honored to give back by offering my time and skills as a volunteer. I am eager to contribute to the incredible work you do and assist others who are facing similar challenges. Please let me know how I can be of service, whether it’s assisting with your programs, lending a helping hand at events, or providing any other support needed. Thank you once again for the life-changing support, and I look forward to the opportunity to give back.

Thanks for everyone
