With your helping hand we can make a difference to families displaced by war in Ukraine, Syria and conflicts in other countries. Your donation will enable us to provide practical support, especially English lessons, and help to getting to know Canterbury.
The war in Ukraine has caused millions more people to have to flee the destruction of their homes. Worldwide there are more than 80 million forcibly displaced people according to the UNHCR.
Canterbury Welcomes Refugees aims to help a few families to rebuild their lives in the Canterbury area. With support to learn English, find their way around their new environment, find schools for their children and training and employment for the adults, we hope that families become a valued part of the community.
