Some women refugee and immigrants who come to Buffalo struggle with domestic violence and become easy targets for human trafficking. WBFO'S Eileen Buckley says the International Institute of Buffalo provides important services for these women as they try to live a new life in our city.

As many immigrants and refugees make Buffalo their new home, some are becoming business owners.  WBFO'S Eileen Buckley met with an Ethiopian woman, who with the her family,  has opened a brand new restaurant on Allen Street near Franklin.  It features Ethiopian cuisine -- that will be very appealing to those seeking gluten  free foods.

"So what are you preparing?", asked WBFO News.  "Salad," said Iman Gatur.  She was slicing a tomato  inside the kitchen of her family's Gatur's Ethiopian restaurant.
