Connecticut organization says it’s prepared to help refugees amid Afghan turmoil.

The turmoil in Afghanistan has workers at the Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants ready to help.
With fewer refugees allowed into the U.S. over the past four years, it has allowed the center time to prepare. They do not know how many people might need help from there. 
They say there are a number of emergencies around the world that have uprooted people and sent them fleeing.
They say one thing they do know is that when people have to evacuate a country in a hurry, it creates trauma. It will be one of the important needs to be addressed along with the basics like housing and employment.
The center says they hope this situation puts the focus on the plight of all refugees.
People can help by being a volunteer and donating items like toiletries. The center will have their major fundraiser coming in September.
