Rich & Sheri Rosendahl

We are based in Des Moines, IA where we have developed a network of friendships among the thousands of neighbors in our city who have arrived as refugees from the Middle East and North Africa.

The Nations is dedicated to peace and humanitarian work - domestically and abroad - with our amazing neighbors who are refugees. Domestically we work to welcome, love, advocate for and develop network of friendships among our refugee neighbors while helping them navigate this new life in the U.S. through forming genuine relationships.

Our passion for Loving our neighbors has also taken us abraod to Love, serve and listen to Refugees in places like; UNHCR Choucha Refugee Camp near the Libyan Border, Aida Refugee Camp in Palestine, the Syrian border in Jordan and Lebanon, and Najaf and Nasiriyah, Iraq. 

This includes bringing teams overseas via our Middle East Encounter Program to Volunteer in Refugee Camps. You can learn more about the next opportunity to join us by clicking here.
