Help Knox raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

I Run With Refugees

The movement of peoples through migration and displacement is unprecedented in the 21st century. The world is seeing tremendous human movement and human suffering due to ethnic conflicts, wars, and poverty. With the influx of refugees in Canada, God has given us a ministry opportunity by supporting their resettlement. In collaboration with Adam House Refugee Shelter, Knox is organizing a Run with Refugees to raise funds for Adam House as it provides shelter and settlement support for refugees. 

Description

Where would you go if you had nothing and you knew no one?

Having nothing and knowing no one is often just the beginning of the barriers new refugees face. Often times there is a language barrier. Refugee claimants are dealing with numerous issues-trauma that was experienced in their home country and on their journey to Canada, and often living with the anguish of leaving family behind.

Adam House provides refugee claimants with clean and safe living accommodations. The staff at Adam House provide assistance and advice with immigration procedures, primarily to residents and former residents. They provide referrals to legal services, medical assistance, and community resources. However, Adam House is much more than shelter or the services they provide. Adam House is home. A place where residents find friendship and support-from staff and each other.

Every dollar raised enables Adam House to continue welcoming refugees.
