    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Some love for a forgotten space

    Day 253

    A Comfy Spot

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    There is a women’s safe house nearby Mugombwa Refugee Camp that needs some love. The folks who run the hospital that houses the safe house do so much to help the community – so we wanted to do something to make their jobs a little easier.

    Neither of the safe rooms at the hospital feel very comforting. The rooms are used by women going through a difficult time – they’re living in a new place, and questioning what comes next.

    So the last thing we want is for these women to lack basic comforts like blankets, sheets, and utensils.

    As soon as we heard about their needs, we set about doing what we could to fix it.

    We found warm blankets, new sheets, cooking utensils, colorful rugs, and power strips. Everything you would need to make a short stay somewhere feel like a temporary home!

    Small little changes like this can make all of the difference. Great ideas coming together to make things better for those we serve.
