Welcome Neighbor STL’s drive-thru supper clubs are a lifeline for refugees.
Badur Mohamed will never forget the abject misery she felt as a newly-arrived refugee in St. Louis in the winter of 2010. She and her husband had just arrived from Kuwait, where they were targeted for years because Mr. Mohamed is Iraqi, an identity that is persecuted in that country. Under the cover of night, they fled their home and made their way to the United States, where they hoped to make a better life for their family. Once she was here, though, all she wanted was to go back.
