Yemelianova Family's Story

Everything Will be Peaceful

When the Yemelianova family’s journey to the United States was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they had no idea they would find themselves fleeing a country at war only two years later.

With the help of the Global Refuge network, they were able to escape the violence and reunite with the family matriarch, Olga, in Massachusetts.
