The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in history. MCC Toronto’s Refugee Program provides hope for LGBTQ refugees in Canada who fear, or who’ve experienced, persecution, violence or risk to their lives in their home countries.
To date, we’ve sponsored 13 refugees from Middle Eastern and African countries where it is dangerous to be LGBTQ, including some countries that still have the death penalty. As well, over 1,000 refugee claimants have participated in our peer support activities. We work with others to speak out about and change the complex refugee system.
Our work saves lives. MCC Toronto provides the overhead costs of the program. Private individual, corporate or foundation donors from the congregation and from the community donate to support the direct refugee sponsorship and program costs. Please join our work!
