Hey Modern Love listeners. We wanted to introduce you to another podcast we think you might love, called Kind World. It features stories of life-altering acts of kindness and moments of human connection. And we wanted play you an episode featuring a story of compassion at the U.S./ Mexico border. It's about a woman named Shalom, who is forced to flee her native Zimbabwe after a vicious attack, leaving behind her family and two children. She never expected to end up in a Texas respite center with other asylum seekers. Now, she is helping other refugees like her overcome trauma.
