Teens invited to spend a night like refugees
GENOA – Churches from Genoa, Kingston and Kirkland are planning a unique event for area teens to raise awareness about the plight of refugees.
“We took it by the horns and we’ve got six or seven churches working together to make it all happen,” said Mollie Hughes, one of the organizers of the Displace Me event for teens Aug. 11 in Genoa.
The event is loosely modeled on a 2007 event hosted in 15 cities that raised awareness about the difficulties of refugees in northern Uganda. There are almost 15 million refugees and 22 million displaced people worldwide, according to Hughes.
