STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

We recently placed a call to a refugee who's stuck on the other side of the world.

(SOUNDBITE OF PHONE RINGING)

INSKEEP: Hi, it's Steve Inskeep. Can you hear me?

JAMES: Yeah.

Each year, thousands of refugees are detained at the Stewart Detention Facility in Lumpkin, Georgia. A large percentage of these people end up being deported. But for families and loved ones of detainees, the ministry known as El Refugio can provide invaluable assistance. 

We hear from the director of El Refugio, Amilcar Valencia. And former guest  Hannah Cho tell us firsthand about the kindness she received from his organization.
