North Texas Catholic: 

Alice Kigera appeared serene and joyful, despite the whirlwind of activity.

The program manager for Refugee Resettlement Services for Catholic Charities Fort Worth, Kigera had less than 24 hours’ notice that an Afghan family of seven would be arriving at the airport.

She and her team sped into action to get an apartment equipped, from furniture to toothbrushes. They hurried to put some groceries in the refrigerator before picking them up at DFW Airport to welcome the immigrants to their new home.
