CRWC World Refugee Day 2016 Project
This year's World Refugee Day on June 20th will resonate more strongly than ever before. With each new story of sinking boats and separated families, we at Christie wish we could do more. And as a friend of Christie, we know that you feel the same way.
This year we have a special project that will make a significant impact on the 250+ refugees that live in our shelter every year. Christie is planning to renovate a portion of our rear parking lot into a community space with landscaped garden, multiple sitting areas, play space for children, and a recreation area (see architect's drawing above).
Others are agreeing that this will help alleviate the social isolation of refugees and is an impactful project worth supporting: $75,000 of the $120,000 cost has been raised thus far.
