To commemorate the 32nd Anniversary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama being presented with the Nobel Peace Prize and Human Rights Day , we have donated a total of $2000+ value of our knitted winter gear from hats, mittens and scarves to Christie Refugee Centre.
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto just minutes from Christie/Bloor in the Annex, Christie Refugee Welcome Centre (CRWC) has provided emergency shelter and a warm welcome for refugee families from all ethnic, racial or religious backgrounds for more than two decades.
Approximately 300 homeless refugee claimants (100 families) from war-torn countries world-wide arrive at the Centre each year. At CRWC they receive the care, support and assistance they need to pursue their refugee claim and to reconstruct and begin their new lives in Canada.
With your support we hope to continue giving back to the community as much as possible. Thank you 🙏
