As hundreds of Afghan refugees arrive in Ottawa, the reality of a new life takes hold.  Many arriving in our city with literally only the clothes on their backs, require immediate support while their paperwork catches up with their quickly arranged travel out of Afghanistan.  While our new neighbours wait for their official status to be confirmed so they can receive government support, many need help with everyday items like housing, food security and their health.

By donating to the JFS Emergency Refugee Support fund, you will be financially supporting those in most need.  Working in partnership with other Ottawa settlement  agencies, we will ensure that Afghan refugees in Ottawa are supported through settlement services and direct financial assistance.
