Welcome to My Life

What's Lauren doing with a blog, you might ask?
 
Well, considering I'm leaving August 25 for 10 months, I thought it might be a good idea to keep everyone updated on what I'm doing! Why am I starting it now?
 
I'm trying to get in the habit of blogging now rather than trying to start while I'm gone.

Canadian Jewish News: Canadian helps African refugees in Israel

TEL AVIV — Lilah Jaffee came to Israel for some hands-on humanitarian experience and found it as a volunteer at the African Refugee Development Center (ARDC).
”When I came to Israel, I didn’t even know there was an African refugee problem. I thought I’d be helping asylum seekers get refugee status, but that’s not the case,” Jaffee told The CJN. “What I thought I was getting into and what I do are completely different. But this has been the most amazing internship for me.”
 
Jaffee, 25, who has an MA in international affairs from Carleton University, is in Tel Aviv on Masa’s Career Israel program. The initiative offers young people from around the world the opportunity to enrol in an internship in Israel.
 
The ARDC is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 by refugees and Israeli citizens to assist and support refugees and asylum seekers in Israel. There are approximately 60,000 African migrants in Israel.
