World Refugee Week at the ANC
June 16, 2014
The Association for New Canadians’ hosted a "Soup’s On" event in order to raise funds to help support refugees worldwide. Students and staff prepared and sold lentil stew on Thursday, June 19, raising $200
to be donated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). A big thank-you to everyone who came out to this event.
The ANC also hosted a Refugee Settlement Information Session on June 18th as part of the Refugee Week events. This information session highlighted the global refugee situation as well as the settlement process here in Newfoundland. Although slated to be a one hour event, two hours later the conversation was still going strong!
