Recent Activities of the Plight of Eritrean Refugee

The Plight of Eritrean Refugee Committee at St. Nicholas church was created to help address the issues that Eritrean refugees face once they leave Eritrea. The Committee was created with a group of volunteers led by Father Vittorio to work in conjunction with the Office of Refugees Archdioceses of Toronto (O.R.A.T).

THE QWSQWAM PROJECT

THE QWSQWAM PROJECT

He is a refugee in Sudan from Eritrea,  a gifted  artist who gives shape to his pains, fears, hopes and challenges. In Sudan he cannot work, but his family need to be fed. As “illegal aliens”his children do not go to regular schools. He hears of Canada, a land that welcomes people willing to make a contribution with their talents. A flow of refugees with family in Canada pass him by and wish him well. He does not have anyone in Canada, nor in Australia or the United States, to support him for the first months until he settles down and finds a job. The Plight Of Eritrean Refugees Group from the Eritrean Chaplaincy  want to give him a chance to make it in Canada. We depend on your generosity for this dream to come true.   This ticket will provide him and his family one meal. Thank you. “It is in giving that we receive . . .” (St. Francis).
