Adela is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).  She was forced to leave her home and go to a refugee camp in Rwanda.  She and her family lived in the camp for 20 years before being able to come to the United States.  Today, Adela lives in Bridgeport with her husband and 6 children.

Adela enjoys coming to the OWC program where she has built friendships with other women from the DRC.
