There will be an estimated 600 refugees from Syria arriving in Phoenix as a result of the current exodus; Catholic Charities is preparing to receive them.
"According to the United Nations, there are more than 4 million Syrian refugees fleeing the Syrian war into surrounding countries.
"Many of these are educated, middle class families living in flimsy plastic tent camps without water or sanitation. In Phoenix, Catholic Charities is preparing to receive an influx of Syrian refugees to assist them in resettling."--Scottsdale Independent
