Millions of people are displaced from their homes every single year, for a variety of reasons – including fleeing war, conflict, poverty, religious persecution, etc. They leave their homes with next to no personal belongings, let alone essentials needed to start afresh somewhere new.
To welcome new refugees to Canada, we have delivered close to 660 welcome kits to new families. This includes groceries, kitchenware items, linens and blankets, cleaning supplies, dishes and cooking utensils. We are grateful for the collaboration with COSTI and Peel Polycultural Immigrant and Community Services for making this possible and we are working to grow the program even further.
Our Welcome Kits contain 30+ items that are essential for helping the newly arrived families to settle down in their new homes.
