Investing now pays off in the future

Building a business in the community
Building a business in the community

As with many organisations around the world, the activities in projects we fund have been limited due to restrictions during the COVID-19 crisis.

These restrictions are gradually easing in some camps and activities are picking up.

We have seen the benefits of our approach to funding during this time as the refugees and host communities are running the programmes and are able to continue in some way without outside support.

We have been encouraged to see the support that refugee communities around the world have been providing during the crisis as this bears out the importance of our mission to build independence and end the reliance on aid.

Some examples of refugees supporting their local communities include women refugees in camps in Jordan are making soap to distribute around the camp, Syrian refugees in Switzerland set up a shopping network for those most vulnerable, medically qualified refugees in Germany are supporting health workers.

These are all good examples of how money invested in refugee projects now can pay off in the future. Refugees show amazing resilience as they face crisis after crisis. A Syrian refugee sums this up when talking about the COVID-19 crisis: “We’ll get through it. This is one more challenge in life.”

With your support, we will resume support to projects once the restrictions allow activities to resume.
