Iraqi refugee-turned-Ridgite helps others resettle in Kings County

An Iraqi refugee who fled death threats in his homeland now helps other refugees begin their new lives in Kings County.

Amed Alfaraji said his own experience as a refugee in America motivates him to help other people resettle in his role as the Director of Community Outreach for the Arab-American Family Support Center.
