Lewiston expected to host Afghanistan refugees

Some of the evacuees from Afghanistan will be living in Lewiston, Maine’s second-largest city, officials say.

Lewiston-based Maine Immigrant & Refugee Services and Virginia-based national resettlement network Ethiopian Community Development Council will partner, Sun Journal reports.

The council is one of two agencies joining Catholic Charities Maine to resettle as many as 225 refugees in the state.
