Walk ‘N Roll for Refugees
September 24, 2022
The Walk ‘n Roll is your opportunity to help the Anglican United Refugee Alliance (a United Church Mission & Service partner in Shining Waters Region) to help refugees on Sept. 24, 2022:
YOU can enable hundreds of Canadians to gain the knowledge, skills & strategies needed to welcome and support hundreds of refugees in their vitally important first year here.
YOU can ensure that sponsors receive extensive training & mentorship to be well-prepared to help people who have endured great hardship.
YOU can fuel sponsors as they help newcomers find housing, health care, learn English, enroll children in school, find employment & access community supports.
