Certainty in Uncertain Times

Posted on

In 2020, it seems like the only thing certain is that things are uncertain. Surely the word “unprecedented” will be the most-used word of the year.

In these unprecedented times of uncertainty, we at West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry are thankful for the certainty that our donors support us in our mission: “striving to improve the lives of refugees.” Charitable gifts throughout this year have provided sustenance for our mission, allowing us to offer a peaceful safe haven for families literally running for their lives.

Although the pandemic has restricted how we provide services, it has given us time to discover creative ways to fulfill our mission and plan for the future. Given upcoming changes at the federal level, we are optimistic that 2021 will provide many opportunities to shine a spotlight on the worldwide refugee crisis and offer services to those who have been forced to flee their homes. 

#GivingTuesday, a national day of generosity, is just one week away on December 1.

As #GivingTuesday approaches, many have asked how they can help.
