Derek Feldman, Community Engagement Coordinator, Kentucky Refugee Ministries-Lexington

If you’ve been following developments in Afhanistan you no doubt are aware of the Afghani allies who worked with the U.S. government – usually military – putting themselves and their families at risk while serving as translators or providing intelligence. In Today’s Interview, WEKU’s Tom Martin looks into efforts to resettle some of those Afghani refugees in Kentucky.
