Thousands of Afghanistan refugees are settling in camps across the country, like Camp Atterbury in Central Indiana.

Today we talk about what it’s like to make a new home in a place where everything is different – the language, the culture, and the people. We also hear from the president of a group representing the Burmese community, to find out what services refugees need when they come here.

Produced by Micah Yason.
