Refugees: Aiding Those with Nothing and Nowhere to Go
We are living in the worst refugee crisis in history with over 80 million people worldwide forcibly displaced due to conflict, often with very little money or nothing but the shirts on their backs. Many are single mothers with children, and the incredibly hazardous, sometimes even fatal, trek is often done overnight. What many don’t know is that many refugees are doctors, lawyers, and professionals simply looking for safety and freedom and to forge newer, brighter futures for themselves and their families. This is why Embrace Relief has stepped in, to help provide all those things and moreDonate For Refugee Relief Today

Since 2013, we have given relief to over 1.4 million refugees. To this day, 29 containers of relief goods were delivered to Syrian refugees in need, and a soup kitchen serving hot meals to up to 4,000 refugees in the border town of Kilis, Turkey. We have also provided the refugees their basic necessities, translators who helped their arrival go smoothly, and pro-bono lawyers to assist with the asylum-seeking process and any legal troubles they might face. In addition, we have implemented virtual English-speaking classes for them to learn how to communicate in a new land. Similarly, Embrace Relief has been working with local and national organizations in the U.S. to help acclimate incoming refugees and assisting families who have recently arrived in the country with guidance and material support.Donate For Refugee Relief Today
