Centre County Native Volunteers Overseas In Refugee Camp

State College resident Penny Eifrig is currently volunteering at a refugee camp in Berlin. She says that she’s had many positive experiences working in the camps and getting to know the refugees. Eifrig says that the United States should be more welcoming to these people.

“The people who are seeking asylum and looking for a safe place to go are incredible people who had wonderful lives and a home that they want to call home," Eifrig said. "And that home has been destroyed and they just want a safe place for them and their families.”

Eifrig says the future for these refugees is unclear. There are currently no plans to move them out of the camps
