Help us make a difference!
In Canada, community groups can sponsor refugees to come to Canada and become members of our society. We believe in self-reliance and empowerment. The sponsor is responsible economically for at least the first year that the refugee is in Canada, and because of government cuts, that can now include medical and dental care. As you can imagine, it isn’t cheap. Right now, Capital Rainbow Refuge is seeking to raise about $10,000. Your donations support basic necessities, giving our newcomer a basic stipend that goes to rent, food, and transportation costs. Help us make a difference and change the life of someone so that they may live and love freely, and follow their dreams.
