- DIVERSEcity Refugee Support Fund
In response to the Canadian government’s commitment to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees, DIVERSEcity established the DIVERSEcity Refugee Support Fund to assist with this ambitious resettlement plan.
The Fund will support those most in need with what they need the most, including housing assistance, medical and dental supplies, toiletries, diapers, clothing and bus tickets. Contingent upon the level of funding received through this campaign, the scope of our efforts may be expanded to include additional programming based upon the needs of refugee resettlement.
For those individuals and businesses who would like to receive a charitable donation receipt, please make your donation by contacting us directly. Please contact Susana Samson, Comptroller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.547.2001.
