CISV USA's Maine chapter welcomed El-Fadel Arbab, a survivor of the Sudanese genocide.
Arbab escaped from Darfur when he was 12.

Some of Bangor's historic homes were on display this weekend as part of the annual "Homes for the Holidays" Christmas tours.
Five homes located on West Broadway and Thomas Hill Road opened their doors to the public Saturday afternoon, with proceeds benefitting Saint John's Episcopal Church.
Decorative themes varied from house to house, reflecting homeowners' unique tastes.
Guests took in each home's architectural heritage, amid a seasonal atmosphere- enjoying refreshments and festive music.
The Maine Air National Guard's 101st Air Refueling Wing in Bangor is now under new leadership.
Colonel Doug Farnham was installed as the wing's new Commander at a base ceremony this weekend.
The wing also received a Meritorious Unit Award, Saturday, for its support of combat operations.
The first U.S. based Guard unit to receive the honor.
Farnham succeeds Colonel John D'errico who will become the Air Guard's next Chief of Staff, based in Augusta.
Farnham, who's been with the Guard for 21 years, is taking charge of nearly 900 people, and 16 units assigned to the 101st.
Donors can pick an angel tag from trees located at local businesses and purchase the gift requested.
Miller says he's retiring, so that he can spend more time with his family and visit his children and grandchildren all over the country.
