SIERRA LEONE "Thanks to Church World Service for helping to bring us here," says Binta Bah, a Sierra Leonean refugee, who, along with her two sons and sister, was resettled in the U.S. with the help of the CWS Immigration and Refugee Program. She lost her husband and baby daughter and her home because of the ongoing war there. In Sierra Leone, Binta Bah sold goods in the local marketplace and her husband was an inspector in the diamond mines. She and two surviving children, and her sister, are among the 161 refugees from Sierra Leone resettled in the U.S. by CWS this year.
