Thanks to Tenth members generously providing accommodation, we have recently been able to welcome a young Afghani woman. She had been staying in a shelter and is now in the comfort of our refugee support team.
Now having a core team of people around her to be her "family", many others have pitched in with donations for essential supplies and resources.
On our first day together, she came to a family picnic hosted by our partners at Journey Home Community. Having been in Canada for a month with no social supports, no money and living in a shelter, meeting so many friendly people was overwhelming. She just kept saying "I feel like I'm in paradise--I will never forget this day!". Since then she has been enthusiastically posting on Facebook how amazing her experience has been--and why doesn't everyone in Vancouver know about Tenth Church?
We have ongoing practical opportunities to walk along her and our other refugee families.
Specifically we are looking for:
We can assist as many asylum seeking refugees as we have capacity for, and the need is great.
To get involved, please email Mim and Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May your week be filled with joy as you walk alongside those that have been brought your way.
