EAGLE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise resident and his group Love Travels are working to bring hope to people in the country where he lived in a refugee camp.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1QSO6nS) Ethiopian refugee Tecle Gebremichael traveled to the same camp where he lived for eight years, bringing 500 purple and gold jerseys that had been donated from Eagle Middle School.

He said Love Travels was formed about three years ago to help encourage other refugees. Friend Brandon Kindelberger traveled with him to bring clothes and soap to the camp in October, and said it felt like home pride seeing the kids sporting the same jerseys as Eagle students.

Gebremichael said the children saw the jerseys as representing their team.

The two are planning to take another trip sometime in the next year.
