With the instability of Afghanistan, Houston has received hundreds more refugees in the last several months than the entire previous year. They continue to move into the Houston area in volume today. Please help us meet the needs of refugees new to Houston with honor and dignity by donating NEW items to build Kitchen Kit #2 during the WBC Houston Welcomes Refugees Faith In Action Day on March 26, 2022 @ 9:00am-noon. We hope to collect enough items to assemble 40 kits, which is 10 more than we assembled last Fall. Thank YOU so much for serving alongside us. Houston Welcomes Refugees (HWR) will distribute these kits to refugee families when they first arrive. Your donations will help families that have suffered greatly get a fresh start in life again.

To learn about other ways you can serve refugees arriving in our city, please join Houston Welcomes Refugees for an Orientation. Orientations last about an hour and cover some basic information about the refugee resettlement process, why the organization exists, and how attendees can volunteer.
To RSVP and learn more visit: https://www.houstonwelcomesrefugees.com/orientation.
Once your orientation is completed, please watch for an email invitation from HWR to attend a training session.
