He left Iraq in the 1980's and using his own funds&nbsp; started the Alalusi Foundation. His foundation offers assistance to refugees trying to put their lives back together, like Ahmed Al Kubaisi, a young man who was shot in Fallujah and is now getting medical aide at a hospital here in the bay area.&nbsp; Alalusi says that he's seen the difference that the organization has been able to make in refugee's lives but the devastation in his region is ongoing.</p><p> Thu, 20 Mar 2014 01:16:05 +0000 Martina Castro 41178 at http://kalw.org Iraq Connection: Interview with Hesham Alalusi Interview with Iraqi refugee Ahmed Al Kubaisi http://kalw.org/post/interview-iraqi-refugee-ahmed-al-kubaisi <p>Today marks the 11th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq -- and even though the U.S. officially left the country in 2011, it's&nbsp; still a country in turmoil.

California is now home to the largest number of Iraqi refugees in the U.S.</p><p> Thu, 20 Mar 2014 01:14:38 +0000 Hana Baba 41169 at http://kalw.org Interview with Iraqi refugee Ahmed Al Kubaisi The State of Media: Interview with Al Jazeera America international correspondent Sebastian Walker http://kalw.org/post/state-media-interview-al-jazeera-america-international-correspondent-sebastian-walker <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Sebastian Walker cut his teeth as a reporter covering the war in Iraq.
