We have Room for Refugees!

Your donation will help us develop our Room for Refugees Network internationally and help rebuild lives. We pioneered “refugee hosting” in 2002. In 2015, we developed an online platform that is currently arranging shelter across Scotland, the UK, the US - starting with Chicago! - and with the potential to go Europe wide in partnership with locally based refugee homelessness agencies. As of 2018, we have registered 7,200 hosts because of awareness of the global refugee crisis. We work in partnership with almost 450 caseworkers on the ground. People want to contribute in practical ways where their governments won't. We now seek your donations to help us develop the online platform, and build networks, which have the capacity to house, as well as help and organise. We want to help refugees, unaccompanied asylum seeking children, destitute asylum seekers and those being held in detention for no other crime than seeking refuge. We want to help so that people can move on with their lives and contribute equally to their community. More than anything, we want this Network to be a worldwide movement of people - a modern day underground railroad - and a force for good in the world!

Please donate however much you can.
