Make a difference in a refugee family's life today
It’s been almost 10 years since the outbreak of the war in Syria, and the plight of many of the world’s refugees has not improved.
In countries neighbouring Syria, refugees are not only suffering yet another brutal winter but also Covid-19, which is testing limited medical resources in the camps there.
Since 2015, 20,000 refugees have found new hope in the UK thanks to the Government’s resettlement scheme – won by the tireless campaigning of thousands of people like you , Kimie . Sponsor Refugees' community sponsorship programme is one crucial part.
Sponsor Refugees has provided safe and legal routes to the UK for refugees like Khaled, who is now a key worker in the fight against Covid-19, working as a cleaner in a hospital; refugees like Falak, who recently graduated from college and dreams of being an interior designer; and Ahmed, who helped cook meals for care workers during the early days of the pandemic, and is now a barber.
At our Refugees Still Welcome Assembly this weekend, i mmigration minister Chris Philp MP said that the Government is committed to welcoming more refugees into the UK. And we want to be there to help more local groups do just that.
For Sponsor Refugees to continue our efforts to build new groups around the country so more refugee families can reach safety and start new lives, we need your donations.
£10 would help us find an affordable house for a refugee family through our landlord registry.
£35 would help to provide training for a community group to prepare to welcome a refugee family.
£50 would help to support a family to identify and achieve their goals.
£100 would help us to build a new community sponsorship group to welcome a family to the UK.
