Friendship Force welcomes students from Suriname and Jordan
Students from Jordan, in the Middle East, and Suriname, in South America, visited Cincinnati recently as part of a program operated by the United States Congress and State Department.
They stayed with local families who are members of an organization called Friendship Force of Greater Cincinnati — and the students took part in a series of activities to experience life in a U.S. city.
They join Cincinnati Edition to discuss their visit, what they learned here and what they taught their hosts.
- Patricia Lehman, co-president, Friendship Force of Greater Cincinnati
- Shae Amitkiran of Suriname
- Siba Al Jarrah, student from Jordan
- Tala Abu Rmeileh, student from Jordan
