The persecution of the Hazara people has become one of the worst humanitarian challenges of our time - causing a global refugee crisis that has been overlooked for too long.
We can help.
Canada is a global leader in responding to humanitarian crises and welcoming refugees. Let's come together to make a difference. Through advocacy, storytelling and private sponsorship, we aim to bring hope to the hopeless and light to the darkness.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are volunteers, whose strength comes in working together. By networking with other volunteers of all stripes - professionals, philanthropists, newcomers and advocates - we aim to:
Connect Hazara refugees and newcomers with the resources, contacts and organizations they need to find better opportunities to live, work and study.
Promote a great understanding of the realities of Hazara displacement and migration, both in Canada and globally.
Recruit and educate volunteers to take part in the private sponsorship process to bring deserving Hazara refugees to Canada.
Aim to be an advocate and support for Hazara refugees and asylum seekers, to amplify their voice, tell their stories and share their unique gifts with the world.
Develop tools to help sponsors support refugees in culturally-responsive and meaningful ways.
Network with other groups and private citizens who are making a difference in the lives of the displaced – through medical, education, employment, resettlement and advocacy efforts.
Since we're volunteers and limited in number, we cannot sponsor all the refugees who need it. And because we are not an NGO or Sponsorship Agreement Holder, we also cannot influence government policy or alter which refugees are accepted into this country.
Our purpose is to answer questions and encourage connections with Canadians who want to help Hazara refugees!
