n World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20, we pay tribute to the strength, courage and perseverance of refugees.

 

Refugees continue to seek spaces of safety in many places and for many reasons. MCC has been integrally involved in providing emergency assistance to thousands of internally displaced families and refugees in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe, as well as facilitating the sponsorship of their resettlement in Canada for almost 40 years.

Join us for an afternoon of music, dance and stories of hope from around the world to mark this special day on Saturday, June 24 at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford from 2-4 pm.

Bring a blanket and a picnic, and come celebrate World Refugee Day alongside refugee families, sponsoring groups, and your community.
