On 11th May in the Church of the Sacred Heart and St. Peter the Apostle, Waterlooville, Caritas will be coming along to explain how we can house a refugee family in our community under the Home Office’s refugee community sponsorship program.
The program involves us coming together as a group of volunteers to help one family presently living in a refugee camp who have no home, no life, no country to call their own, without hope or joy in their lives. There are many different ways to volunteer your talents e.g. find suitable housing, take family members to doctor, help with form filling, teach English, finding schools, fundraising etc. Everyone can do something to show kindness and compassion to fellow humans who are living at barely subsistence level.
In our Diocese this program will be guided and overseen by Caritas. So come along to a non-committal briefing seminar in the Church of the Sacred Heart and St. Peter the Apostle, Waterlooville, PO7 7SR, at 1.30pm on Saturday 11th May to hear Sean Ryan, National refugee Co-ordinator from Caritas, tell us more about how this inspirational project works. There will also be some refugees there who will share their experience. More information from Kevin Gallagher at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07388994057
