Through friendship and kindness, we support refugees, those seeking asylum and others of equivalent need to enable them to become part of our communities, to reduce inequality through reducing chattel poverty and to support them through linking them to other organisations or simply with friendship.
The trustees and organisers of the recently established Refugee Kindness – North Wales charity are currently in delight and disbelief in equal measures after receiving the news that not one, but two funders have approved their funding applications.
We Need Your Help
Refugee Kindness aims to relieve poverty or financial hardship among refugees, asylum seekers and those of equivalent need and their dependents living in North Wales by providing goods and services which they could not otherwise afford, to enable them to participate fully in society.
How we are helping Refugees
Turning houses into homes
We support families in accessing household items through our Facebook group, which acts as a free marketplace. Families can request household items, clothing, toys and much more. We have 3000+ members on this group at present.
Many of our beneficiaries have also become volunteers in areas such as PAT testing, translation and helping with events arranged by the charity. We have also provided opportunities for beneficiaries to learn a new skill by collaborating with other organisations for art classes, running our own sewing classes held by a beneficiary and much more.
Our beneficiaries love nothing more than to invite us into their homes and introduce us to their traditional cuisine. This is a great way for them to practice their conversational English. Many of our beneficiaries have managed to make new friends through events that we have arranged. We believe that our service helps to reduce isolation and combat mental health issues.
Words from one of our families
“I would love to thank each and everyone in this group for helping people who is in need. This means a lot for people like us. To make us feel we are still worth to live our life as everyone else and to have a place looks like a real home. Thank you”
