PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Bienfait Jugado, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, enjoyed his first-ever Thanksgiving feast Saturday. He was one of about 150 recently arrived refugees at the Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island annual holiday event.
“I ate an apple, a carrot, and cake,” the 9-year-old said. “And some cheese. And water.” Not to mention some turkey, of which there was plenty to go around.
