Friends and Family,
I am volunteering as a family mentor for the IRC and need to raise $600 for the family I will be mentoring.
The IRC, International Rescue Committee, provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of people, forced to flee violence and persecution, are welcomed by the people of the United States into the safety and freedom of America. These individuals have survived against incredible odds. The IRC works with government bodies, civil society actors, and local volunteers to help them translate their past experiences into assets that are valuable to their new communities.
I am raising money to mentor a refugee resettled by the IRC in Maryland. These funds support the costs of interpretation, training materials and a point of contact at the IRC to answer any questions I have throughout the six-month mentorship. Check out this video to see the impact the IRC’s Family Mentor program has: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=203&v=UsnOAjOTiRA. I choose to stand with refugees and support the IRC. Please consider donating to show your support for refugees and help them become part of our community.
