Help welcome refugees to British Columbia by donating to our gift card campaign. This is a practical way to make a difference either as an individual, or as part of a school project, book club or faith community.

With your support, we can provide refugees with some basic necessities to help them start their new lives in Canada. This gift will be especially meaningful this holiday season!

Whether you give a cash donation (charitable tax receipts are issued for any amount over $20) or an actual gift card(s), your contribution will go to those families most in need.
