Dolphins Assist World Relief Center
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville University women’s basketball team continued to make an impact in the lives of others this past weekend as they worked in conjunction with the World Relief Center to host a “Fall Festival” for Burmese refugee children living in Jacksonville.“The service event with World Relief Center was one of the most heartfelt experiences I’ve ever been a part of,” said senior guard Ronisha Mitchell. “The children that we worked with are amazing individuals and it was great spending so much time with them. It was a humbling experience and we are better people because of it”.
According to 2012 Florida statistics, numbers show that over
the past five years, Jacksonville has become home for nearly 2,000 refugees
from the troubled country of Burma, a sovereign state in Southeast Asia.
