What Can We Do to Help Refugees?
The Syrian refugee crisis is in the news every day, and it makes us feel helpless: what on earth can we do?
Churches have often taken the initiative in responding to this kind of crisis, and this situation is no exception. Churches of every stripe in every community are already organizing—raising funds and creating teams to bring refugee families to Canada and help settle them. Some have already received “their” Syrian families!
If you would like to give some money, or volunteer time to help, consider doing it through a church near you.
Here at St John the Evangelist Anglican Church (at Locke and Charlton), we just welcomed a family of refugee newcomers to Canada from Syria. We can use all of the help we can get.
You do not have to be a member of any church, or to believe anything in particular, in order to help out! Everybody’s help is appreciated, and there are no strings attached. Really.
