In June, July, and August we called on friends like you to support our special Summer Campaign to help up to 2,000 refugees in need of assistance. We needed to meet a goal of $110,000 by August 31st – and thanks to you and other generous friends of LIRS, $147,900 was provided! Thank you!
Your faithfulness and generosity helped LIRS to welcome and assist 3,010 refugees from June to August – helping these precious people access health services, employment opportunities, and even basic accommodations.
In a particularly heartening story, three generations of a family from Kyrgyzstan came together again after years apart. While Amir was resettled in the Portland area several years ago, he longed for the day his parents and grandmother could leave the refugee camp to join him in building a new life. And in August they were finally reunited. Thank you for helping many families like Amir’s over the summer.
