Raised by 41 people in 18 months
As the Syrian refugee crisis has exploded onto the headlines of local newspapers and filled TV screens with shocking images, Canadians all over the country, including Niagara, are stepping forward with offers of assistance and questioning what more they can do to help. The Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre is responding with a grass roots community effort and is inviting local residents to get involved.

The Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre is a community based non-profit charitable organization located in St. Catharines, Ontario.    Our   team of professional staff and volunteers provide vital settlement services to newcomers as they strive to create a rewarding new life in Canada.

Donations to the Niagara Folk Arts Refugee Assistance fund will be used to directly sponsor  Syrian refugee families, help other organizations and  individuals sponsor and provide supports to resettled refugee families.

Donations  to the fund can also be mailed to our multicultural centre to: 
Niagara Folk Arts Refugee Assistance
85 Church Street 
St. Catharines, ON, L2R 3C7
