I believe wholeheartedly that health care is a human right. I recognize it’s a complex system to fix, but to me it seems morally reprehensible that the Afghan families being resettled in the U.S. should face any obstacles, whatsoever, when attempting to access medical services.
Given the constraints of communicating across our native, spoken languages, we let our bodies talk. We motioned with our hands, heads, and feet.
In the days that followed we brought the family to our homes to cook and play and took them to the grocery store and Walmart to buy clothing.
The Afghan family we’re sponsoring arrives tomorrow in Savannah, Georgis, by way of a military flight from a U.S. base.
