BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ)– Following his United Nation’s address, President Obama joined other world leaders to discuss the worst refugee crisis since World War II.
“You have to imagine what it would be like for our families, our children if the unspeakable happened to us,” said Obama.
From the Middle East to Africa, factors such as war, political upheaval, poverty and famine, have put millions on the move. Baltimore’s Catholic Relief Services took part in the meeting.
“We must just step up,” said Carolyn Woo, CEO of the Catholic Relief Services, an organization active in refugee camps from the Middle East to Europe.
