Hi New Hope friend,
Jamey McDonald here. Today I want to tell you about what an awesome banquet experience on November 6 at the Bombay Banquet Centre in Surrey. We called it "Telling New Hope Stories", and had an amazing evening with good food, fun friends around tables, great stories from our past and present residents, and a challenging appeal from myself to seek some help to keep the New Hope story going.
The United Nations has said that there are now over 21 million refugees world wide... and why that number is increasing is due to conflict and turmoil in many areas of the world. At our banquet, we put faces to the crisis and listened to the stories of current and past residents of New Hope
We heard a story from K. who came from Swaziland 10 years ago. K. arrived at New Hope with nothing more than a suitcase, and is now studying to be a nurse.
R.'s story surrounds her coming to Canada with her husband and 4 children after 7 years of living in a refugee camp in Kenya. They arrived
