End of Year Message from our CEO

Dear Supporter,

As 2016 comes to an end, I would like to express my gratitude for your support to USAIM's mission and share an update on our global efforts made possible by your generosity and partnership.

This year, USAIM focused on seven humanitarian and protection programs for vulnerable migrants – predominantly displaced and vulnerable children.

Building Tunnels

My name is Ahmed Badr, and I am a 17-year old former refugee from Baghdad, Iraq.
 
When I was eight years old, my house was bombed by militia troops. Soon after this event, my family relocated to Syria. After two years in Syria, we applied for refugee status with the United Nations. After a year of interviews and background checks, we received four one-way tickets to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Olympic Melting Pot: An interview with Nick Delpopolo

When you turn on your TV this summer to watch the pageantry and competition of the 2016 Olympic Games, you may recognize names like Michael Phelps, Carmelo Anthony, or Alex Morgan. But despite being ranked #1 in the country at his sport of judo and boasting over 25,000 Facebook likes, you may not yet know Nick Delpopolo.
