International Rescue Committee (IRC)

A dad and daughter reunited



From, Utah: A heartwarming piece about an Eritrean refugee, Idris Ismail, resettled by the International Rescue Committee, who was determined to bring his daughter, Nura, to the United States. It took 5 years, but she arrived last Thursday evening, (with the tireless support of the IRC’s immigration coordinator in Salt Lake City, Tatjana Micic).

"I'm happy. So happy," Idris said, excited that he was at last going to be a 'real dad, not a phone dad.'
