100 dollar donation can help improve the living standard of a refugee
As part of our commitment to the global community, Canada receives a large number of refugees every year and commits substantial human and financial resources for resettlement services. The Canadian government is working to resettle at least 40,000 Afghan nationals, of which some 7,885 arrived in Canada by February 18, 2022. At the same time, refugees from other parts of the world continue to arrive in Canada in their efforts to escape conflicts and persecution.
Those arriving in Canada include refugees approved through the special immigration programs of the Government of Canada, privately sponsored refugees, and refugees referred by the UN Refugee Agency, the USA and Front Line Defenders.
Human Endeavour is a registered charity. We assist the government agencies in serving the newly arriving refugees in addressing the settlement challenges, which includes the provision of weather-appropriate clothing, snowshoes and jackets, and cards for the purchase of food items. Imagine someone arriving in Canada without any belongings and no cash in hand?
It transpired in our daily interactions with the refugees that a lot more needs to be done in addition to clothing, shoes and food support. Human Endeavour has received grants in-kind from IKEA and the community enabling us to provide mattresses, duvets, pillows, kitchenware, cooking ware, drapes and other necessary items to help the refugees settling in the York Region.
For instance, we came in contact with a single mother of three living in a basement and sleeping on the floor since she could not afford a bed or a mattress. Through community donations, Human Endeavour provided the family with mattresses, besides warm clothing for the children. Similarly, we were requested by the authorities to assist a family who had no crockery and was sharing two plates for six people: we provided mattresses, duvets, pillows and other material to two families of six people each, who were sleeping on the floor and their apartments had no furniture – not even chairs.
We have so far assisted 152 individuals - arriving as refugees from Afghanistan, Turkey, Mexico, Pakistan and other countries – with support from community donations. But the number of people in need of our help is far higher than the current capacity.
Please help us in serving the refugees in addressing their urgent needs. Every penny counts. The most pressing demand at this time is for the following items:
These items are urgently needed for at least 600 individuals (CAD100 per person living support) living in the Greater Toronto Area. We accept support in in-kind and cash. Human Endeavour will issue a tax receipt for cash donations.
We urge you to come forward and help the refugees in need. Every dollar counts.
