Jesuit Refugee Service/USA's Channel

Grammy winning singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris traveled to Ethiopia in 2016 as part of a Jesuit Refugee Service delegation to learn more about issues affecting refugees, particularly the need for education. Ms. Harris visited several JRS projects, including the JRS Urban Refugee Center in Addis Ababa that provides educational training, counseling and emergency aid, such as rent and food support for newly arrived refugees. While in Addis Ababa she visited the homes of refugees, an experience she said moved and inspired her. Ms. Harris also traveled with the delegation to visit refugee camps in the country’s north, home to more than 36,000 refugees from nearby Eritrea.
