Who are we?
We are a multi-cultural group in High Wycombe who have come together out of a shared concern to help destitute refugee families in the UK. We find them private rental accommodation in the Wycombe area and give wrap-around support, helping with job-seeking and registration with schools, doctors, dentists and English classes. We have so far resettled 22 families with refugee status and invite your help to house more.
Why do people flee their homes?
What would make you desperate enough to risk your life on a leaky dinghy and then stow away in the back of a lorry? Here are some actual examples from the people we work with:
“A mortar fell on our children’s school.”
“Our flat was destroyed by a bomb.”
“My parents were murdered by the régime.”
“I was thrown in prison. They tortured me and broke my legs.”
“Family members have been put in a concentration camp.”
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
