One small loan
American Refugee Committee
When people are forced to flee their homes, they must leave their livelihoods behind. They take with them their skills but must abandon their tools in order to make it to safety. Stripped of a means of supporting themselves, families languish. There’s not enough food or clothing, and they can’t afford to send their children to school. People want more than anything to get back to work, but they have no opportunities.
Your donation can change everything for a family. A small loan and a few skills and small business training sessions make an enormous impact. Mothers and fathers can start a small business that feeds their whole family, clothes their kids and sends them to school. They may even be able to save some money to expand their business in the future. Try to find a gift of self-sufficiency at the mall or shopping online. You can’t. It’s a unique opportunity to make a lasting difference in someone’s life. And it’s a unique gift that you’re loved one’s sure to appreciate.
