There's always a big group of them that come to the swap every year a couple of them actually came last year and decided to come help us get ready for the swap this year. So that was a really beautiful thing to see. And I got to grab a moment with another woman from our team Susan who has worked alongside of these refugees and helped a lot of them the night of the swamp.
