Episode 1: April ’16 Refugee Podcast Premiere


Women of the World’s refugee podcast is a place where ‘our ladies’ can share their stories and aspirations and where we can highlight activities important to refugees and service providers in Salt Lake City, Utah and around the world.

In this month’s episode of the Women of the World Podcast, we cover:

1. Women Mormon Conference

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Conference gave direction to its followers to serve refugees through local organizations. On their new webpage http://iwasastranger.lds.org they give inspiration and scripture for their commitment to refugees.

With your help, refugees will be strangers no more.
