Voice of America features CARE’s “Letters of Hope”  exchangebetween students in Boulder, Colorado and their refugee counterparts in Dadaab, Kenya. “Now too with the numbers of refugees and displaced people just continuing to go up every year, there also seems to be a sense of fear around the world and what we wanted to do with this project, this Letters of Hope project, is really connect people around the world, and show the common humanity that exists, and we think, what better way to do that than to connect children,” said CARE Emergency Communications Manager Holly Frew.
