Action on Refugee Rights:
Many Presbyterian churches are Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAHs). For a full list of Presbyterian churches across the country involved in refugee sponsorship, visit the Government of Canada’s website here. Up to date information can be found on the PCC Refugee Sponsorship Facebook page.
The Presbyterian Church of Canada supports refugees through the Presbyterian World Service and Development relief agency.
The refugee ministry of PWS&D is a response to Christ’s call to serve and defend those who are vulnerable and persecuted. Arriving at a makeshift camp can be a very daunting experience. PWS&D supports displaced people living in refugee camps through the provision of food, clean water, shelter, education, income-generating opportunities and emotional support.
