After “giving the very bluest” with meaningful Blue Key gifts to her loved ones back in November, Blue Key Champion Paula Kiger wanted to spread the word further with a video illustrating the impact your home has — and just how easy it is to help refugees regain the safety and comfort of home:
After learning more about the trauma and hardship refugee women endure, Paula says that “Over 46 years of being daughter to my father and 19 years of being wife to my husband, I have complained about things. A less-than-sympathetic voice tone here and there, disputes over The Style Network vs ESPN on tv, other bumps on the emotional road of family life.
“But come on … I have had it good! Displacement, traumatization by sexual violence, torture, and aggression were all abstractions — something that happened far from my comfortable four walls.”
A safe home — and the Blue Key to a better future — can make such a big difference in a refugee’s life.
Paula Kiger is the Director of Health Plan Services at the Florida Healthy Kids Corp. She writes, edits and proofreads under the name “Big Green Pen.” Her favorite job is parenting her two kids.
