‘I want what everybody wants,’ Afghan refugee says after a year of safety in US

Romal Noori escaped Afghanistan with his family a year ago. There, the family had lived in danger under Taliban rule because of his near-decade work for the United States government. Since finding safety for his family in southwest Missouri, Noori has focused on giving back to his new home and making it better for his family.

“I hope someday my children became helpful for the community, for the people around them, for the neighbors, for the needy pupils. This is my wish for them, and I’d like to see them with such a great opportunity to help others like people keep helping us,” Noori told the News-Leader, part of the USA TODAY Network.
