Hearts and Homes

This week, we are staying local. A refugee family from The Gambia recently lost their home in the Bronx to a devastating fire in which they lost everything they had. They just found a new apartment, but literally have nothing. There are two parents and five children, ages 19 months to 20 years old, with two school-aged children, 10 and 12 years old.

Hearts and Homes for Refugees is seeking help for this family, including setting up a Refugee Emergency Fund that they will be able to use for this family and others in equally dire circumstances. Checks can made out to Hearts and Homes for Refugees and mailed to: Hearts and Homes for Refugees, P.O. Box 8558, Pelham, NY 10803. Please write Refugee Emergency Fund in the memo line.

In addition, we will be collecting school supplies for the two school-aged children. For families struggling to make ends meet at the best of times, school supplies are a huge expense and represent a real financial burden. In order for us to make a meaningful difference, this project needs to be carefully coordinated. We are currently waiting on school lists, etc. Email Irina Kimelfeld at ikimelfeld@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.
