Collection in the foyer at ASDA Rawtenstall
Volunteers wanted for collection 11:30 to 16:30
In March 2011 a mother was reunited with the two small children she hadn't seen for over two years. We hope this reunion is the first of many and we are relying on your donations to make this happen.
Although this year we have faced problems with delays on cases and a significant reduction we have established a new way of generating income whilst helping families and have seen that there has been no expenditure on anything apart from grants.

Imagine being separated from your family for months or years without knowing whether or not they were safe.
100% of your donation goes to families in need. As a small charity we are able to maintain low running costs and none of your donation will go towards these. We guarantee that all your donation goes straight into a grant.
Refugees sometimes put themselves in vulnerable positions by using their benefit money to pay for family reunion rather than food for themselves.
I used my benefit. I was eating bread. Maybe just eat bread for a week. Just eat £10 and save the rest. It was not easy.
