30 days for refugees - Day 12

    Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 07:00

    Yesterday we talked about finding or creating a safe space online or in your local community where you can meet likeminded people who also care about refugees.

    Well, today we’re asking you to look into actual, real-life safe spaces you might find in your area. You might be able to find landlords locally that are willing to give a room or a whole property to refugees, or perhaps you have a space you can offer in your own home?

    You could offer a place for refugees to stay in the short-term, or find people that are willing to do so.

    Contact refugee service organizations in your community to find out how you can help them meet the needs of refugees in your community

    Amir, a refugee from Syria, fled to Turkey and managed to learn Turkish, find work, and a place to live relatively easily. So he decided to rent out the rooms in his house to others fleeing Syria, so he could help and support them and make things easier for them in Turkey.
