We need your help this winter to ensure that refugees who come to us receive a warm welcome and help with their everyday needs, such as bus passes to medical appointments or a chance to enjoy relaxing activities.
Jesuit Refugee Service UK’s mission is to accompany asylum seekers and forced migrants, serve them as companions and advocate their cause. One of our growing concerns is for refugees who, after having escaped very difficult and tragic circumstances from their country, are then thrown onto the streets in London with no support and no permission to work after their asylum claim has been refused.
“After fleeing my country and arriving in London in 2002, I never thought I would once again start living in fear without food or income, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. I am one of the fortunate ones because I went to JRS who supported me every week and assisted me in my studies. I eventually graduated with honours and I am now working.” Diana
We need your help to continue to support people like Diana.
£20 would provide a food parcel to a newly destitute family, £120 would help sustain our toiletries scheme, £8.80 would pay for bus passes for critical legal appointments.
