Our presenters today were Angela Eifert from Alight (Formerly known as the American Refugee Committee) and Ted Johnson.  Both Angela and Ted are members of the Roseville Rotary Club.  Alight is based in Minnesota and has been doing its work for over 40 years.  They define their work as: "Building a meaningful life for and with the displaced. When we find people displaced from their homes, countries, or lives, our instinct may be to focus only on their basic needs. And that is essential. But it’s also not a life. A life is filled with joy, dignity, connection, and purpose. And that’s what we aim to build. We are an open family of organizations that works closely with refugees, trafficked persons, and economic migrants, to co-design solutions that help them build full and fulfilling lives – lives that are Alight."  Angela's comments today were focused on the work they are doing relative to the Covid-19 pandemic in Africa, especially Uganda.   African countries have seen very low rates of infection and death but just recently a refugee camp in Uganda has had an outbreak.  Since people live so closely together in these circumstances, it is very challenging to combat, once the disease arrives.  Much of their work is around health messaging so that the spread will be minimized.  Ted spoke about the Nakivale Rotaract club chartered in Uganda in 2017.  The Roseville Rotary club is working closely with this group on this and other critical issues.
