Would you join us in making a difference to a refugee family fleeing war in Syria?

Over the past year a group of volunteers in East London have been preparing to welcome a refugee family escaping civil war in Syria. This is part of the Home Office Community Sponsorship Scheme. The family have already left Syria and are currently in one of the UNESCO refugee camps on the Syrian border.

We have now been given notice by the Home Office that the family will be arriving in the UK within about the next 6 weeks and we need quickly to furnish the house we have secured for them in East London.

Would you help us by contributing to our fund? We need another £2500 in order to turn what is now an empty house, into a welcoming home with everything a young family will need not only to survive but to flourish and settle.

All donations received will be spent directly on furnishing the house.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
