He Helps Iraqi Kids in America
Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Sky Choi's mom, Dana, had been providing legal aid to Iraqi refugees, and he was moved when she told him about a client whose son had been briefly kidnapped by insurgents. "He was my age," recalls Sky. "I wondered, 'What happens when they get here?' " In a new country, these children-whose parents were often forced to flee because they'd assisted the U.S. military-"must be so confused. I thought one way to connect is through games. So we asked people to donate them." Then Sky, a college junior at Florida International University, sent packages to kids whose families were settled by the List Project (thelist project.org). So far, he, along with two young cousins, has delivered 1,000 monthly parcels of toys, school supplies and Arabic-English comics. One recipient, Yasmin, 11, of Maplewood, N.J., says, "I felt lonely and was so happy when the package arrived." A Nintendo game made her feel like a regular American kid, and a dictionary "helped at school." Adds her mom, Bann, 37: "We needed to know someone was thinking of us. We are so grateful to Sky."
