In Canada, a new model of private community sponsorship has been developed to offer an alternative solution to the years of waiting for resettlement. In a nutshell, local communities are able to sponsor refugees to resettle in their community and commit to helping them integrate into their new home for their first year of stay in Canada.
RUN is committed to helping as many of our participants as possible to leave the state of limbo they live in in Hong Kong and start new lives in Canada. While the Canadian sponsorship agreement holder will assist with housing, school and job searching, and general integration in Canada, they are under financial pressure to save as many lives as possible, and have asked RUN to fundraise for the sponsorship expenses as determined by the Canadian government.
In 2020, we need to raise an additional HK$568,000 to resettle three families to Canada.
You can help refugees to start a new life by making a donation to our Community Sponsorship Fund using the following methods:
