BATON ROUGE- Refugees from across the world are getting acquainted with their new home city today, thanks to help from Catholic Charities.

The group helps to introduce refugees to an American lifestyle, including giving them a brief history of Louisiana Government, the Capitol building, and how to do everyday tasks in America.

Hau Deih Piang escaped Burma years ago and lived in Malaysia until he could achieve refugee status is America. Piang says he's happy to have opportunity and the ability to express his religious freedom.
