Helping Asian refugees get health clearance, housing, children enrolled in school, transport to doctor appointments with translator was only part of what I did as a program coordinator. Every day was different, I learned to be ready for the unexpected like transporting a mom to the hospital while she's in labor! I helped many in different cultures such as Cambodians, Laotians but mostly Vietnamese.
I taught four Vietnamese ladies English, reading, speaking and writing up to 5th grade by myself and really enjoyed it. The First Baptist church oriented them to our appliances and other useful items. As the (140)families became more acclimated to our culture, language, etc. they didn't need my help so World Relief closed our official office but I still helped out when needed.
Enjoyed friendships with Asians and helping them
Some culture differences
